My father is a master carpenter and cabinet maker so I really appreciate seeing other artisans carry on their craft and make beautiful quality products.

My grandpa taught me this craft when I was 12-14. I’ve often wished I had time to pursue it further, because it is a fun art.

It is great to see that these craftsmen are still around. A hat store in my own small town makes hats the very same way. It is truly an art and hopefully it will continue to live on.
