Tim, owner/blacksmith

Tim went to school for welding and has been welding for about 30 years. He has worked with TIG, wire and stick. It wasn't until he attended the Pioneer Show in Itasca, Minnesota, that he found himself trying blacksmithing. And soon, new tools were purchased for this new form of art.

Recently, Tim has been incorporating metal into some of the custom work he has done—like a dining room table with metal accents or heavy metal brackets that are used to support countertops. He has done metal yard art such as a pig on a stick for a pork farm.

But the new thing is the outdoor FirePit Poker—great for use with a bonfire and the Campfire Fork with a four-foot handle—great for roasting marshmallows or brats over the campfire.
