I have always loved working with my hands, but I have to say expressing it with wood has been such a wonderful experience for me. I have done alot of other things that required my hands like drawing and painting, working with Mechanics like Jet aircraft, on my own cars and motorcycles. I love working so much closer to Nature than what I am used to doing, it is amazing how you can mold it and shape it and create such objects of beauty, I wish I had started earlier in life, but hey it’s never to late to start I guess and it is such a challenge
There so many wonderfully talented people on this forum it is amazing. and the Knowledge is great. I see alot of people here who actually still love this after so many years of working with wood, I can see how it would be a life long passion for some, it must be something to see perfection in your own work, I know I have a long, long journey ahead of me, but I have some fullfillment in what I have accomplished so far. One Day I would love to see the Perfect Dovetail or the exact fit on a lap joint, it’s pretty amazing when I build something out of wood and it fits together nicely. My joints are horrendus right now, but I have already seen improvement.
anyway it’s just a few spiritual musings on my day in the shop. or maybe its just Jack talking. :)
