Every once in a while, I get a real kick out of people.
In my previous entry, I posted a photo of a gentleman named Tom Holloway. He's the carpenter at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site. In the photo, he's holding up a big chunk of Maple that he hoped to fashion into a potato masher, and he hoped to fashion it as they would've done in the 1800's.
Here's the photo:

Well, Wednesday night, Tom sent me an updated photo, in which he's clutching the potato masher he made in his circa 1860 carpenter shop. I think it's pretty cool:
I think that's kinda' cool. Had I made it, like everything else I ever tried to make in shop class, it would've ended up as an ashtray.
I wanna' say "THANKS!" to Tom for sharing some of what he is so clearly passionate about, and for helping to contribute to the blog. Honestly, it's a first, and I really appreciate it.
If you ever find yourself at Fort Vancouver, pop in and tell him I said hi...
