What Rusty stuff do you get when you combine an anvil, a forge, and 3 railroad spikes?

One of the best parts of my day is the morning coffee. We have our own little daily dramedy going on where there are a few constants and a number of special guests. And you never quite know what is about to walk through the door. (Also, a Cafe Americano with a nice crema on top makes me pretty happy too.)

This morning's special surprise came when Rusty showed up and started pulling knives out of the cargo pockets. He brought three today. All had started their lives as railroad spikes. He brought stages of completion so that we could see the process.

Rusty builds things because he can or because he has never built a [insert random object] before. And his t-shirt tells no lies, he does indeed void warranties! And he roasts his own beans!
If you'd like to see more of his handiwork, be sure to swing by 5701 Avenue P after dark and check out the Christmas light show.
May you have a Rusty in your group of friends!
