Things can appear instantly in a virtual world, in the way that ideas for things pop into my head. But to make things for our real world it takes a little longer. That’s reality for you. It doesn’t matter if you have a factory that makes thousands of things in a minute or a workshop that a piece of furniture is shuffled out of from time to time. Without good planning and trial and error we would not have much to comfort us at all.
Work like this is often described 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 love doing this. I only use materials from renewable resources and make things that will last many generations. Things for people to use, treasure and enjoy. Things for you?
