Discovering woodworking this afternoon

Well, we really hit it off at the hand tool school today. After a sharp start to the day we got into the joints and that’s always fun. It’s a challenge with high expectations for everyone. All those inner questions like, “I wonder if I can do it.” and “He makes it look so easy, surely I can do it, can’t I?” At the end of the day they all learned a lot, and of course there are disappointments; not quite tight enough, gap here or there, but life should have risks otherwise we’d never know success or failure would we?

For me it was success throughout the whole of the day and I will shortly explain why. For now, the picture above will help until I can work on the verbiage for the next post later this evening.
