I've covered my challenges with trying

to produce glass fairly extensively in

the past but one material that's

actually been an even bigger challenge

and been holding me back in many ways

has been metals through gold panning and

some silver mining I've been able to

produce some precious metals but only in

small quantities making a workable

quantity metal has been pretty elusive

to me ever since a very poor attempt I

made at smelting iron several years ago

but if I ever want to make it pass the

Stone Age I need to figure out how to

make some metals instead of jumping

straight into the iron age I'm going to

start with one of the very first metals

humans began working with copper by

mining it and then extracting out

hopefully a usable quantity of copper it
