People familiar with Spokane's Steve McGrew know a few things about him. He's an inventor, a tech company owner and board member (serving as co-founder of biotech firm GenPrime).
He's also a diehard blacksmith, using his shop for classes and to make commercial metalwork for people wanting tools, utensils, outdoor decorations or functional pieces.
Sunday's Spokesman Review business section will have a story on McGrew and his hopes to help create an area blacksmithing collective. He'd like to find a shop somewhere that lets students and teachers work together.
The story includes a video of McGrew working in his smithy.
