    Thanks Del. I didn't mean to de-rail your thread and turn it into "shop talk," so thanks. Looks great so far and I can't wait to try my own mokume. Those rings should turn out great.

    You get the idea. I am sure forging steel is rich with relationship metaphors.

    What is really funny to me is that I considered going into the ministry 20 years ago. I may still do that later in life. The more time goes by the more it appeals to me. This is not to say that I don't enjoy what I do now, but several of the local ministers have a part time job in addition to ministering. I have no problem with public speaking, and I think i would enjoy most of it. However I do not yet feel that I have been called, so I will just have to wait for that day.

    This is a random patterned ring, so most of the pattern is formed by the layering and the working down of the billet, but i do like to add a bit of character, here I used a ball peen hammer to dent the surface a bit(you can see some of the dents and how the layers are deformed on the edge)
