Wood has always spoken to me. It’s beautiful grain and it’s ability to be worked and planed by hand.
The act of planing wood itself is wonderful. With a few passes of a finely sharpened plane you can take away the machine tool marks and leave behind a surface so smooth it reveals the natural beauty of the grain.
The Japanese believe that a piece made from a tree should last as long as the tree grew. I have always created my furniture and other pieces with this in mind.
