The Heart of a Tinman
My journey to becoming a tinsmith began as a teenager. In junior high shop class, I made his first tin dustpan, not knowing I would return to making dustpans and other tinware as a professional craftsman many years later. .

In 2006, I found work with a modern sheet metal company, where I discovered the different processes for creating sheets of tin. Curious, I decided to research period tinware and started collecting original nineteenth-century tools and machines. Since then, he has been working full-time as a historical tinsmith and general historical restoration specialist, reproducing tinware from the Colonial period through the Civil War.
My wares are based off originals and I claim the rare practice of using hot dipped tin, as opposed to electro-plated tin, which was not used until the 1890's.
Thanks and we hope you enjoy the Hot Dip Tin Store,
