    Can we make a knife here?

    This is at a place here called the McColl center for visual art. It's an old church that has been turned into an awesome art studio. You can apply for a residency here and sell your art too. There are probably 8 different artists working during their tenure here. There are all different mediums, blah blah blah.
    This place will be my home during the DNC this Sept. as we do a week-long party for the National Journal.
    In my downtime, I'll dream of forging knives-something I know nothing about.......[IMG][/IMG]

    Sorry for the crappy cell pics.
    "See... the problem here is that... my little brother, this morning, got his arm caught in the microwave, and uh... my grandmother dropped acid and she freaked out, and hijacked a school bus full of... penguins, so it's kind of a family crisis... so come back later? Great."

    I was thinking there needs to be a buffer wheel, but I see one on the end on the left. Need a sander is all I can think of. But I am not a maker (yet).

    That place looks awesome! a lot of tools that you can use to make something that would resemble a knife.
    I like that first pic, engage brain before using this machine.
