My grandfather was a "finish" carpenter, and a good one. It was his job to show up after the basic construction was complete and do the fancy wood trim and cabinetry on
everything from homes to businesses...even some elegant churches. His mastery of tools and the fine tolerances he could achieve were the envy of his peers and guaranteed him
ongoing work throughout most of his life. In his later years, he began making one-of-a-kind items, baby cribs, bassinets, intricate cabinets and furniture. When I asked him why,
he said, "I got tired of carrying out second rate plans for other people. I wanted to use my tools to create the beautiful things that I see in my mind."
