    I thought so. You could always put a filter behind it if you are concerned about it pulling any air in.

    Thanks everyone, I feel very blessed to have the new house and shop. A cabinet maker ran his business out of it for 30 years. So it has all the bells and whistles already built in.

    Thanks Ed. It is a room with a toilet in it. I'm going to take out some of the shelving to add a sink with an on demand water heater. It probably won't be much work to add a shower as well.

    Scored a loader fork yesterday,this piece weighs 140lbs and is about to get set in a 5 gallon bucket of cement. These make sweet post anvils.The rest of the fork is going towards my power hammer build. IMAG1845.jpg IMAG1846.jpg

    I'm really liking working with this KILLER walnut I've got. Love that feather curl figure.

    Took some time yesterday to build a much needed rack for the angle grinding area outside the back of the hot shop. Nothing special, just one of those...."needed" things. That greasy spot to the right is where I piped the exhaust for the air hammer outside..... makes it much quieter inside the shop. (doesn't seem to matter how often I clean up that oily stuff.....it's right back there the next time I look) :)

    Also got things ready to forge today..... the smaller billets are radial and explosion pattern that will be forged round for "plug welding" into other blades, and the large billets are another experiment :) That "experiment"? I've got this idea for a "can" billet with various shaped/patterned pieces within the billet(s). I think Tim and I will do a video on building that particular "can".

    I've been working on a frame-handle bowie. I got these fantastic feather figure walnut scales all finished and ready to install. These are incredible in person!

    Beautiful work as always John. There isn't anything better looking than a good walnut crotch handle.
