I just read my latest article in the British magazine The Woodworker and Woodturner. It’s a bit different than my usual articles for the magazines and I hope it helps people to understand some of the things we woodworkers do and the reason we do what we do, when we do it, how we do it and where we do it.

My garden is littered with golden leaves mixed with bronze, brass and copper too. The bird feeders are busy and life seems so full!

 

 

A poinsettia somehow points toward the more festive celebration of the Christmas season and Thanksgiving in the US is only one day away. Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the USA and thank you for sharing so much of your lives with me and my family over the past 25 years. We too will be celebrating Thanksgiving for all we have received in our lives and how better to celebrate that than with friends and family.
