Blacksmith forges ahead with new business
JUNEAU - Not many people can say that they found their passion in life at 15, but Rodger Snyder can.
Through years of working in factories and metal shops Snyder held onto that passion and used it as a springboard for everything he’s learned. Now he’s brought 45 years of experience into his new shop, Black Oak Forge, W5970 Highway 33.
“I worked part time in high school for a guy who owned a body shop, and it just so happened I was there on a Sunday and he asked if I wanted to go along on a ride to check on his dad,” Snyder said.
His employer’s father, a German immigrant, was at the time living alone, so they went to make sure he had food in the house and was OK. After a couple of weeks of visits, the two arrived to find Snyder’s soon-to-be mentor in his workshop.
“The first thing that hit me was the smell, and as my eyes get adjusted to the change in light I see him at the forge, and that’s all it took,” Snyder said. “I would go over on Sunday and I would clean up around the shop. It got to where I was over there every night after school and all weekend. I worked for him for maybe 9 months and he said ‘Do you want to learn this trade?’”
