As a "job" it is an outlet for pure creativity and I believe, good for the soul.... well mine certainly.
When I discovered fine furniture making. I never imagined I would find something that would inspire me as much – or even more – than kite surfing. Little by little, the kite magazines are being fazed out, to be replaced by Cabinet Maker and Elle Decoration....though I must admit, there's still nothing quite like a good strong force 6-7 showing up on the forecast!
