Metalworking has always been important in Dave's life, learning from his cousin who owns one of the largest machine shops in Iowa. Known to have one of the largest travelling blacksmith shops in the five-state area, Dave spends countless hours around the Midwest demonstrating his work and skills to the public at rendezvous and special events. Dave founded the Lake Superior Metal Smith Club. Other pastimes include training and caring for his horses, woodcarving and pottery.
