Watching Mike work with that drawknife you cannot help but see that
he KNOWS the wood and the tools. Most of us who use hand tools
a lot, we get that. I know the wood and the tools well enough to
get stuff done, but watching Mike, well, he just knows where to
put the effort in, and where the wood will work for you to help the
tools get the job done. Damn, I gotta get those old dusty parts
back into the shop and finish that set of chairs!
