I just read on finewoodworking.com that James Krenov pasted away. Given that Sam Maloof has also recently pasted, this has been a bad year for woodworking icons. These were fantastic woodworkers and did a lot to advance the knowledge of woodworking. They built incredible pieces that inspired numerous people and their pieces will inspire even more. However this made me start to think…
How will you be remembered? Is that was you want?
If you are a woodworker (and I hope you are if you are reading this), what will your pieces say about you? Are they sloppy or works of art? Are they expressions of your heart? Do you blog about your learnings and give back?
Given the loss of these icons, it gave me pause to think. So…
How will you be remembered?
