I stare at a piece of wood. Then I stare at it some more. Eventually, my eyes hurt and my brain is full of ideas and I start sketching. This usually involves a little additional staring at the wood.

If I look a piece of wood in the eye, errrr… knot, long enough, sometimes it winks and let’s me build something memorable. The more inspired I get, the less planning is needed and I enter a certain state of grace when it comes to wood.

Then I put the pipe down and start fixing the mistakes I may have made along the way. The things you can learn by fixing your own mistakes… seriously it’s priceless.
