Every year, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Karen and David Curl in Naselle host a Hammer In party at their shop, Solstice Forge. I think this is the fourth or fifth year that I’ve gone. Sometimes I bring along something to work on, or just fool around making something out of scraps that Dave has laying around. This year, when I arrived, there was already a lot of people there, and three different projects being worked on out of two fires, so I just hung out, ate some great food and took a lot of pictures.
