Yesterday, at work we had a meeting with our finish carpenter. Every time I have the opportunity to talk with him I become more in awe of his amazing skills and craft. He is eager, creative and has the sort of passion for his work that is immediately apparent and rather contagious. I left the meeting feeling inspired and dreaming of custom carpentry projects. The first item on my list which I am actually half serious about following through with is a custom spindle bed. Months ago I posted about my love for spindle beds and since then the love has turned into an obsession. I really must have one - maybe for my birthday....Anyways being a renter custom carpentry work really doesn't make sense so I will just have to wait on the rest of the list. Till then I will swoon over examples like these of beautiful carpentry work (note I use the term carpentry rather generally and probably not correctly but for me it means anyone who is skilled working with wood).
