Hi Bjorn.  Glad to see you on here.  I've been enjoying the videos.

I enjoy seeing big transformations, big bends, raw stock being worked, etc.  I also enjoy more on refinement, show preparation and setup.

John, good to hear from you as well!  I will keep your ideas in mind for upcoming videos.  Any heavy work/bending/etc will be done later in the year when this Osaka heat dies down, but we'll be putting it in the videos when it happens.

Bwaynef...thanks for reposting the videos!  Still new to the forum posting, so I haven't figured out the details yet.

Most of the music is The Yoshida Brothers.  Shamisen.  I'll be over there for all of November and December and hope to make more.  Bjorn is an editing whiz.  I'll make sure he gets a copy of the toad award....
