Creation is a miracle. I’ve been a carpenter all my life and my wife thinks I should be less fascinated by the whole process of creating something beautiful out of a chunk of wood. But I can’t help it. I’ve always loved making things with my bare hands and I feel a sense of euphoria every time I finish making something. I don’t think that feeling is ever going to go.
Carpentry is not just a profession- it’s a wonderful skill to have. No matter what professions come into vogue, carpentry is always going to be a staple. After all, people are always going to need furniture. And I’ve always gotten some pleasure at the fact that I’m able to make the furniture for my own home. I don’t have to wait at stores, or dig around till I find something like. If I like a design, I just put it down on paper and make it myself.
