Making an heirloom (part two)
This is what it's all about.
For those of us who work with wood - there is usually a reason behind it. The need for creativity. Artistic expression. The desire to share something personal. Recreational pursuits. Mental escapism. Or even something as simple as - being too cheap to buy a gift.
Whatever the reason - I meet people every single day of the week who love to work with their hands. It is similar to cooking a meal for someone - you're sharing a part of yourself. That's called love.
Here's a follow-up to a post I recently wrote, in which one of my students built his daughter rocking chair. Well, not just any rocking chair... an heirloom quality piece, destined to be handed down a few generations.
I really don't need to say much here, this picture is worth 1000 hugs.
