Since your passionate about your work. As I know you are, by the quality of your hammers. Maybe diving into your work again will help the healing process, getting your mind off of things for a bit, which could turn into relaxing therapy?
Just a thought, I wish you the best with whatever you decide.

I'm so very sorry to hear that, Shoo. Please let me know if you need anything.

I know that it's not much consolation, but I have one of your hammers, and I bought one for a friend, and we both absolutely love them. I actually look at it more than use it, because it truly is a work of art.

I'll definitely go in for 2 when your ready. I too think that totally bites, and I wish you the best. Better yet come to Hawaii , it always makes things better, or it maybe the generous amounts of alcoholic beverages I consumed
Everyone has their own personal Demons , I just tend to let mine out

My condolences to you shooboy. I am a proud owner of one of your hammers and like ed32hall said it is a work of art. I even made a special place to hang it on my reloading bench instead of tucking it away in my toolbox.
Sorry for your loss, you have my deepest condolences.
And I am another fan of your work. I have a large hammer on my bench and a small one in my range box. They really are the best you can buy. I hope at some point you decide to make them again as I know mine are treasured tools, so I hope others get the chance to own them as well.
Prayers are with you, may gods strength be as well.

Randy, sad to hear of your loss . You have my deepest sympathies.
I have one of your hammers. After using it, I can't imagine not having it, it's that good.

Dang. Just cruising through the Classifieds and came upon this. I don't have your hammer(s), and you don't know me from Adam. But I have a wife, and cannot imagine the load you're bearing. I'm very sorry to hear you lost your wife, and I pray God carries you through this and the sun shines brightly on you on the other side of this whole mess. Godspeed, friend.
