Red Barn Forge - "Equipping Mountain Men"
Gallery 4-2-2014 (still adding pics as I find them- See our Facebook page for all our most recent pics this year!)

Finally updated the gallery with a few recent pics. Click to see larger image. Keep in mind that 2011 work was done while recovering from brain and central nervous system damage. Not my best work. 2012 had been a better year. 2013 has been even better. You can see the progress and improvement. Hope 2014 to be my best. More photos to come as I look through files. Newest pics are listed at the bottom of the gallery!
