Details


"Every man's life ends the same way. It's only in the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another."
   -Ernest Hemingway

I believe anyone can nail together two pieces of wood and build a serviceable stool or bookshelf or desk. I have been guilty of doing the same. It's the details of a piece that make it beautiful. Details added by the hands of the maker, by the hands of the user, or both, it doesn't matter. But the details of a thing are important.

They don't have to be elaborate.They don't have to be simple, They just have to be there; considered and purposeful. When they're done right, few can easily describe their contribution. Details bring harmony to the whole.

My work is the only place I sweat the small stuff.
