Rubbing elbows with giants. That’s what I spend my time doing.
I have two things to say about the article:
1) I’m very please to know you better than I did a minute ago;
B) One of my many taglines is “Woodsmithery: The sport of the easily-distracted.”
And, also) I now have a brand-new tagline. Thanks – “He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”
St. Francis of Assisi
Your work, your artistry, and now, your personality, take my breath away.

Always nice to see the best artisans in their fields posting on this board and more importantly the humbleness that all of you have as well as the patience to comment and suggest to those of us who are still learning and trying to emulate you by copying your work.
