Blacksmith David Woodward makes Glassblowing Raking Tool

Blacksmith David Woodward was demonstrating at the Scranton “Arts on Fire” Festival (June 1-3, 2012) and made me this unique raking tool!

I am going to make a wild guess: That I am the only glassblower in the world to have a raking tool make from a railroad spike (rail spike)!
