Here is a quick video of master carpenter, Norm Abram showing a tool box designed and built by a piano builder from Boston named Henry Studley.¬†
Studly’s level of skill is so high that I am intimidated just by looking at it. This is to say nothing of the consideration I have given to the¬†patients¬†he must have exercised while building it.
Work like this is¬†truly¬†Zen like as the builder must¬†achieve¬†a focus so sharp that it actually begins to blur the lines of consciousness and different states of mind. In my experience, the¬†closest¬†I have come to this is still miles away from the radiance of this tool chest.
One day I hope to be half as skilled as Henry Studley.
