I saw something today that would be SO COOL!  Hinges made out of 2 horseshoes.  The ends of one horseshoe were curled back onto themselves and the ends of the other horseshoe were turned outward so they fit in the space created by the curled ends.  VERY cool looking!  I'll see if I can post a photo of them!

I found some stainless 3/8" rod today. Should make some great meat hooks. Found on old ax last weekend. May repurpose it

Started my first bush/camp knife.  It's going to my brother for all the free spring steel he gave me
