I have a friend who enjoys working in the medium of wood. I can understand, there’s something about working with wood that seems to offer a Zen experience. Over the years he’s become quite good at it, in fact I would say at this point he’s an artist of sorts. Anyway, he’s making me a beautifully finished coffee table, shown above during construction, and when I looked underneath what signature did I see set skillfully into the Kos-orange, hand-crafted lacquer finish?
As a blogger I may not get tens of thousands of dollars for whoring out to industry, unlike some. But it’s a great trade-off in my view: I get to keep my dignity and, pardon the pun, literally remain master of my domain.
