    Yeah, I didn't realize that until I found the link. I'm overworked and tired!

    This is really great! I am so happy to have you around to show us this kind of thing, it is both informative and deeply inspiring.

    DrNaka,

    You are right, I wasn't factoring in three smiths. 780 divided by 3 is 260 per smith per year. As in one per day for every 5 day week of the year. Sorry about my original math error.

    Wow thanks for the detailed walkthrough. I always enjoy seeing behind the scenes and into the techniques that are used to create something great. Thank you for posting.

    It's great to have a glimpse into a craftsman's shop and techniques.
    Fantastic blog, DrNaka. I really enjoy reading it. Perhaps, a book down the road?

    I do not think a book will sell because you can read it free at my blog.

    And the editor has much to do because my English is my 3rd language.

    A blog is a blog and a book is a book. They are not the same. For instance, you can't have a blog on your coffee table for others to see.

    Not in US. But I do enjoy drinking coffee in my living room with a pile of books on my coffee table that I periodically flip through to look at the pictures (I have read them). My friends love to look through them too.

    That and newspapers I enjoy reading on paper. I read plenty online, but reading on paper is a different game. And no, I don't own an Ipad (and don't plan on owning one).
