I do believe after today's BBs that I should now qualify for BB10 certification.  Here is my list:

1. Built a kindling cracker  (If you've got a RMH, and you should have one, this is a "must have" tool in my opinion.)
2. Developed a residual income stream.  (Would you like a Huang Raising Hammer?)
3. Sold goods I've made. (Can I interest you in some art?)
4. Cooked some grains in an instapot.  (It was tasty as a Spanish rice dish.)
5. Powered up the chainsaw to cut down a dead tree.  (Lots more standing firewood to cut thanks to the emerald ash borer!)
6. Got a good arm workout sawing down another dead tree.  (We tend to forget that the crosscut saw was a marvel of technology at one time.  Sure beats gnawing down a tree with your teeth!)
7. Put together a small 12 volt DC solar system. (Specially designed for camping.  Ok, it's really for car camping.  I wouldn't want to carry the battery or solar panel in a back pack!)
8. Raised a small copper bowl. (This is what I've been doing for my day job!  So it was an easy, if time consuming, one for me.)
9. Made some copper tongs.  (I don't know why most metalsmiths purchase flimsy, cheap copper tongs when it's so easy to make superior ones with basic metalsmithing skills.)
10. Was an electricity oddball, replacing my home system solar battery bank.  (Ouch, but this was an expensive BB to do!  Hopefully I can make this new battery bank last 10+ years.)
Staff note (Ash Jackson) :

Congratulations on BB10! You've done some amazing work already!
