Show me a picture and give me a length. I’d like to try. Also, in
writing this, my thoughts connected to the recent thread about
copying, or “stealing” a design. I may be “taking” something that
someone else took the time to “design.” I feel that when a piece is
"put" out there, it is to serve a purpose. That might be to pay the
bills or enrich the existence of the creator of the piece. It may
equally serve as an impetus or inspiration to someone that mimics the
technique but can’t master the construction. For some, original ideas
can be hard to come by. It takes time to hone a skill, let alone to
develop the ability to apply it in in practical manner to your work.
Google a woodworker by the name of James Krenov. He has spawned a
legion of “disciples” that work in the"krenov" style, yet they are
not James Krenov. i marvel at the things I see when I visit your web
sites. You are an inspiration and you all encourage me to be a better
learner. I hope this makes sense… home from my “real” job just
getting my Orchid “fix.” I am hitting send before I lose my courage.
