Everybody Wants A Studio Version

So Ted Yoder, a very talented Dulcimer player, went live on Facebook covering Everybody Wants To Rule The World by Tears For Fears, and it was a big viral hit. Somehow he then gets Curt Smith and his drummer Jamie Wollam to join him at his home for a reprise. The video and audio are both a little poor (hence the title) but it is still wonderful.

Hammer It Home

Relax and watch a craftsman at work. A beautiful example of hammer and chisel engraving of steel. As the artist describes it...
This video shows the basic steps taken in hammer and chisel engraving. I've been learning over the past years and this is a way to show my progress and just what hammer and chisel engraving is. I start with taking a pull from an engraved firearm and transfer the design to a practice plate. The cuts are made by striking a small homemade handle with a carbide chisel. Once the main cuts are made I add shade lines and the background is punched. I have posted several videos on the topic so far and will be posting more in the future.
