Gone Focusing: Day 37

Countdown to Facebook return T- 3 Days. Binging, or controlled?

On the value of fucking up, or how we learn.

I spent the evening carving the inlay in this cribbage board (The piece still covered in paper). I made a nice template, and handcarved the inlay to fit in the hole I had previously cut.   It became clear to me as I worked that I did this exactly backwards. I should’ve cut the inlay first and then traced precisely around it with a knife to outline the hole I should carve out.
