My Woodworking Hobby
Everyone likes wood! I don't know anyone who doesn't like wood.
Everyone I talk to says "Yeah, I like to do so and so with wood" and seems to have
a wood-related hobby of their own. There is some special kinship
we feel with fallen trees and the making of things from them.
From Christ, the carpenter, to Leanardo DeVinci, to the cabinet
maker down the street, to the guy building a deck in his back yard,
manipulating wood, even just touching it, seems to evoke some
primordial sense in us.
In my case, my affair with wood has led me to create a
few objects. I started with
My first carving,
was a gift I made to my father, to express that I too
shared the kinship with wood that he, and his father
before had (Granpa was a saw-sharpener back in Colorado,
amongst other things).
More recently, I have started making wooden
I find it utterly fascinating to create something
that is both functional and nice to look at.
I've also made a few other things that don't fit into the "carving" or "box" categories.
I've made a few pieces of furniture, and I like to make picture frames as well.
