Josh Greenwood at Spring Fling. Photo by Jim Wilson Josh Greenwood Let Josh Greenwood anywhere NEAR a forge and he'll start playing every time! See what I mean?

Of course, it IS Friday night and he is on the schedule.

Greenwood samples and anvil. Photo by Bill Wojcik Ersatz anvil and leaf samples Josh didn't want to take one of his big anvils (450#). So, he made a stand for a block of mild steel. Its the "drop" or "dougnut hole" from cutting a piece of heavy steel plate. 10 - 20 cents a pound at a scrap yard.

The leaf shown at left (I think) was forged on that anvil and with a 25# Little Giant. Photo by Bill Wojcik.
