We forget that the moon is out. We forget that rivers run underneath us. We forget that we can make things with our hands and heart.
We believe that the world is now held in the palm of our hands. It is instead all around us. We just have to look up and notice it.
Remember to remain curious. Believe that you don’t have the only way of doing things. Keep open to change. Forgive yourself your mistakes and keep doing good work.

Well said, Gary. I imagine that you have taught a lot of woodworkers over the years both directly and indirectly through your writing. Welcome to Lumberjocks. Your work is beautiful and your studio and shop are wonderful.

BTW, what is the technique that you used on the two boxes where the wood is lighter underneath the darker wood on top. It that a dark finish that is chip carved through or is it veneer over a lighter wood core. How did you achieve that? Have you described that technique in any books or articles? You do beautiful work.
