Under rapid construction

Things can be done rapidly in the virtual world.

However in the real world things take a little longer.

Take for example the objects I make. It is certainly not unusual for it to take me a hundred hours or more to make a piece of furniture. People often describe fine work as painstaking. Well to be honest apart from the occasional slip of a chisel or thump of a misjudged hammer blow, pain has nothing to do with the things I make. I feel privileged to choose from vast array of materials our planet yields and tap into methods long forgotten and those barely invented to create things for centuries to come. For people to use, treasure and enjoy.
