Another Aussie

Postby Brendan S » Fri Aug 07, 2015 8:16 am

Hi,
My name is Brendan, I live in Cairns, Queensland, Australia.
I have seen there is a wealth of knowledge and skill here and hope to absorb some of it.
I always had an interest in metalwork but have never had the time. I am very time poor so have been slowly polishing a sword as a way of unwinding and would like to restore some other pieces I have.
You will notice I have a thing for spiders which is reflected in what I add to my collection.
Look forward to any advice and seeing the skills in others work.
Regards
Brendan

Hello Brendan , this is a good place to be if you want to learn some traditional Japanese metalworking techniques.

Nice to meet, Brendan. :biggrin:
Let me keep my mind on what matters,
which is my work
which is mostly standing still and
learning to be astonished.
