While visiting my youngest son Mark and his Sofie in Sweden this last summer, we saw a charming corner cabinet in their kitchen that was made by Sofies father about 25 years ago. The interesting part is that he hates woodworking and just did it to make some extra money needed for his young family at the time. Just goes to show that having a talent for something does not necessarily mean a person likes to do it.
Sofie made the comment that the crossing lines on the side and bottom of the bottom door were an 80’s thing and not compatible with the traditional design of the cabinet. She’s right about that, but I like it anyway and I thought some might be amused by the idea of a good woodworker who didn’t like woodworking.
I found out about this dislike while he was building my kids new garage. I guess he just can’t escape it!
