"What I would like to do before it is too late is
to get this across to a few craftsmen-to-be who will work after me, and also to
a public which will be there to receive them, because we are living in a time
when, I believe, this is important.
Fine things in wood are important, not only
aesthetically, as oddities or rarities, but because ... much of our life is
spent buying and discarding and buying again things that are not good.
Some of us long to have at least something, somewhere,
which will give us harmony and a sense of durability -- I won't say permanence,
but durability -- things that, through the years, become more and more
beautiful, things we can leave to our children"
James Krenov -- "A Cabinetmaker's Notebook"
