I opened Refiner's Forge in 2015 after serving 13 years in law enforcement. I attended the Trade School of YouTube for most of my education in blacksmithing. I love the hard work and creating one of a kind functional pieces of art with my hands. My business name comes from Malachi 3:2 - " But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap." To check out current projects, and what's going on in my shop click the blog link.
