i've had charles lewton-brain's book of fold forming for quite a while, but haven't had a chance until now to give one of the folds a try. i used rio grande's bench tube video as an accompaniment, and just a few tools besides a small piece of thin gauge copper sheet--a steel block, plastic mallet, the cross peen end of my goldsmithing hammer, part of a wood skewer, and a knife blade to open the form after hammering is finished. what a pretty little rueger fold i was able to make in a short amount of time!

what a great book!

my first rueger fold 

some of the tools i used to form this sensuous shape
