I found this quote in a recent issue of fine woodworking. It’s a very inspirational quote, and I have since printed it out, framed it and hung it in the shop.

“Few people have the skill woodworkers have, to build things with their hands and with machines. Few people have the patience, the knowledge, the determination, and obsession to build the furniture that you do. So spend time in your workshop to relax, to reflect, to plan, and to create—the results will be appreciated by generations to come.”

I’ve made a sign with this quote that can be downloaded. It’s just a jpg so anyone can print it. It’s in color with picts on it but should look good in B&W too. In case anyone is interested. Of course you’ve got to build yourself a ‘shop bulletin board’ to put it on first right? I recommend turning the page sideways when you print.
