It’s a feel-good message for woodworkers – craftsman and DIY’ers alike.

Good read, thanks for passing it on.

So now i’m left pondering – But craftsmanship must reckon with the infallible judgment of reality, where one’s failures or shortcomings cannot be interpreted away.

Thank goodness we can hide mistakes sometimes :)

-- Good judgement comes from experience and experience comes from poor judgement.

Tim.. I guess it’s all about acknowledging the shortcomings and THEN hiding them :)

Thanks ever so much for posting that link Debbie. At a quick glance, there are so many things that strike a chord with me – the education issues, old motorcycles, George Sturt’s book etc. I’ll need to get hold of this book. I know I was going to cut down on book buying in 2009 but some you’ve got to have..

Thank you! It was a VERY good read and something I have been preaching for many years… I’m heading for the book also!

So do we. But there really isn’t space for even another slim volume in our little place. I started cataloguing my collection and stopped at around 1500. That’s without Mrs. YS’s stack. Then there’s her wool, my wood & my tools & motor cycles and …. We couldn’t even think of moving house.
