A Spirit of Meekness In Wood

….simple goes the chisel,
the meek inherit the wood,
cherry moves my hand
—by flp


What a challenge it is today in this milieu of character ambiance, to turn off all machines and work for days in the simple simplicity of hand tools. And may I add that at times I still use those machine tools, but no-thing gives the flavor of satisfaction that comes from paring the wood by hand.

Thank you.

” smart, work safe, and live, to work the wood....”
