Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
Yesterday started our with a long-awaited dentist appointment.
8 AM to 12:30 PM were spent sitting in a chair getting two crowns and two fillings. I am glad they got it done, but I was worn out afterward.
When I returned home, I had to reset for an hour to not feel as rotten. My jaw and teeth hurt pretty bad.
There was work to be done here at Willow Manor so I reshaped the duck pond and leveled the garden area. While working, I found this stash of eighteen duck eggs so it looks like the epic breakfasts will continue.
My Beloved said not to overdo it as I had been to the dentist, but purchasing clothing for my new job was way tougher than any shoveling or yard work. Fortunately, I had a lot of assistance.
In between and during my chores, I walked seven miles. I am still practicing to meet my physical fitness goals, but time is escaping me no matter how hard I try to plan!
I have been dabbling in knife making as a hobby and picked up some aluminum bar stock for gaurds. I figure it will be a lit easier to file through than welding steel. I also tried my jand at a little leatherworking, but it has a lot to be desired, much like my knives!
The knife fits secure in the sheath and the waistline on a belt.
I gifted it to the Twelve Year Veteran of Life, and told him if it breaks or wears down, we will just make a better one.
That was yesterday. This is today. My back and teeth hurt so bad I couldn’t sleep past 4 AM. I overdid it.
Should have listened to my Beloved.

I always wanted to try my hand at bladesmithing.
It isn’t that bad. What kind of tools do you have laying around?
Have a decent shop. Have tried a cat litter forge but didn’t work too well.
If you have a belt sander or angle grinder, nothing is stopping you.
We have a belt sander but it’s a flat top table sander. Ones I’ve seen smiths use is vertical for sharpening and edge management.
Hmmm. You might have a shot at it
Nice on finding all those eggs!! Great job on the knife making and the leatherwork. It will be mastered in time, don’t worry. Praying for you on the back and teeth. Please take it easy today.
Thank you Auntie Beverly! I am shopping with my Beloved right now, so resting a little easy.
You’re welcome, nephew! That is great…relaxing, fun and exciting!
The sheath looks good in the picture. I agree you should take it easy.
Thank you and thanks!🤠🔥
Oh no! But really nice blade! I had a dentist appointment today, I’m getting my wisdom teeth taken out in May, finally
I had 8 removed at one time on my 21st Birthday. Fun stuff. Get well soon!
Get well soon my friend 👍
Your beloved know best 🖤
Two crowns and two fillings! My jaw hurts just thinking about it. I recently had a root canal. The most painful part was the bill—but that’s another story.
Best of luck with the knife.
Bills are painful! Thank you for the well wishes!🤠🔥🔪
Very besutiful knife 😍😍😍
Thank you! 🔥🤠
Maybe you should take up DIY dental work next!
Absolutely. I just need a few volunteers.
Shouldn’t be too hard.
Agreed. I got a dremmel and vise grips
Open wide and say ah!
