Doug Wolf bio:  Doug Wolf's shop, Wolf's Den Forge™ was originally founded in Detroit, MI and now is a wandering smithy that travels the country hosted by various other shops, such as Dragon's Watch Forge & Foundry, and Badger Blades to name a few, we are currently working on building our permanent shop high up in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado in Park County where the mountains, rivers, and forests are our inspiration.http://www.wolfsdenforge.com

Bill Epps bio: Bill Epps has been doing full-time Blacksmithing since 1986. Before that he was a Farrier (where he started making his Novelty Horseshoes and Snakes back in the early 70’s because he likes to show off, and his customers loved them.). He got tired of making just horseshoes, and developed his talents in the forge towards practical items (i.e. Dinner Bells, Tripods, Pot Racks) to be sold at Craft Shows, and in 1987 started doing commission work while working for Old City Park in Dallas as the Resident Blacksmith. He taught weekend short courses to give individuals the basics of blacksmithing. His many years experience as a machinist tool & die maker have contributed to his overall knowledge of types of steel and his ability to make any tool he needs to do a job. Some of his work for decorators and builders can be seen in some of the finest homes in Dallas, ie. Gates, Grilles, Doors, Railings, Window Seats, Custom Chandeliers and other Light Fixtures, not to mention Custom Tables, Lamps, Canopy Beds, etc.  http://ww6.besmithy.com/
