Art Me, A Sharp Saw, Patience
I was young. I watched a muscular carpenter rip through a large plank in four pushes of the saw.
Later I discovered it is patience, not strength that makes the smoothest cut.
Good saw work is about more than where I begin, but more at where I finish.
Funny how a saw lesson helped me to do better in my studio—everywhere really.
