How many ball and claw feet do you have to carve to say “enough is enough”? I never thought I would say this, but… enough is enough!
If I admit that these historic eagle talon feet grasping the “pearl of wisdom” have gotten the best of me, will I be kicked out of the Society of American Period Furniture Makers? Will I ever be able to look at a period furniture maker in the eyes again without feeling the shame of defeat (de-feet)?
OK, I’ll be back next week ready to tackle more, but for now… just a wee little break is all I ask. Then I’ll be on my game again and happy to carve more.
When you go to sleep at night and have visions and nightmares of gnarly and twisted talons creeping around every corner, I think it’s time to take a break.
But I shall return! They will not get the best of me! There are more feet that are struggling to escape – and I’ll be there for them…
