class begins

last night my roommate, lauren, and i met her parents at her uncle’s house in nederland – a sweet little mining town up the canyon from my home. her uncle, kit, is a retired mechanical engineer and all-around creative individual who has now taken to woodworking full time. he makes absolutely beautiful furniture and actually built his log home up there in the hills. of course, it’s a work of art all on its own.

anyway, during a tour of his home i asked whether he’d consider taking me on as an apprentice. he accepted and today was my first day with many more to come. i feel so alive making the right cut, and sanding it to the perfect finish. this is the beginning of something great.
