A Generous Craftsman

My parents moved into their dream house just as I was going through a divorce. For my dad, the highlight of his new house was going to be a basement woodworking shop. He generously postponed that dream so that I could move back home (“home” being where my parents were) for several months until I got my life back on track.

Nine years later, the basement I once shared with my three cats looks like this:














Dad creates some stunning furniture and treasures in his shop. Recently he focused on box-making and treated me to this:














Notice the dove-tail joints, felt lining, and secret bottom compartment.


























I love it. Thank you, Dad. For all you do.

His craftsman ship is gorgeous.


P.S. I'm sure your mom is equally awesome!
