    a friend of mine is really in to it.

    He does everything like a 16th century Viking, it's pretty cool to see the stuff he makes.

    Like most things there's so much to learn it could be intimidating
    Do you know how he learned, did he have a mentor or wing it?

    He and his wife were really in to SCA, and so he built a small furnace and started doing some sand-casting.
    Now that he's doing armor and the like, he has some guys that are in the scene and they offer tips and advice.

    I'll send him a message and ask for his advice.
