Sample text

Holding the piece of wood in your left hand you can, with the left thumb, press against the top of the knife blade and "dip" that cut as you are making it away from you. These are smooth, strong movements your hands will be doing, and the thumb along the ba'Ck of the knife gives force to the cut: you get a lot of power tJ:lat way. I',m talking about this because not having the right knife often keeps us from making simple discoveries and doing what we really want. Like using beautiful but very hard wood for small fine details: handles, consoles for shelves, little latches, and various other personal touches.

There is reason enough for a young person (or any person really) setting up a shop, who wants to do what we call fine craft in wood, to be doubtful about the final appreciation of his audience. There isn't the establishment of mutual confidence. The public does not always know, almost never knows, the difference between the surface which can be produced in sensitive hands and with a sensitive eye, and the surface that you have run off the jointer and belt-sanded. It is, I think in some instances, as bad as that.

It's always been personal, not just between me and what I'm doing, but 58 with me and all those who have been involved, who have looked me up, left me little messages of encouragement, bought the few first pieces that I made. It's all quite simple. Except that there were times of silence when the telephone didn't ring and no one came and there wasn't any mail; when I thought, felt, knew that others were making it easy for themselves and getting away with it, using reputations and names and trends to advantage.
