Elija's Jan. Demo

 

Elija's demo

Event Date: Feb 22, 2019

Elija's first CDBA demo at the forge was terrific. Very nice job. Not only did he clearly show how to make a wizard bottle opening he explained in detail how and why he had special tools for each process, emphasizing the two eye punches and the sequence in using them. After the demo, Elija generously spent one on one time helping a greenhorn make his first opener. They ended up with a beautiful Wizard Bottle Opener. Good job Elija and Chris!
