Artisan Bio

Hello all.
I am a blacksmith of 17 years specializing in period correct hand-made 18th and 19th century reproductions. I am also a gunsmith, and member of the Montana Historical Gunmaker's guild. My main business is blacksmithing, but I also build a few rifles, pistols or fowlers each year. My wife Rebecca does weaving, fiber arts, leatherwork, and is getting into quilling.
