When I started working wood with hand tools primarily, I thought I was virtually unique.
Then I discovered I was actually part of a subculture.
Eventually I realized I was a niche market.
So it goes.
It could be worse, we could be part of the mass market.
I’m just hoping that won’t be the next step.
Since we are now in the new age of tribalism, working primarily with hand tools is not enough to define your subculture. You need to now choose between the 18th century woodworking re-enactors, the Zen Japanese sharpening disciples, the bohemian green woodworking gypsies, the split-wood-only 17th century wrought nail adherents, and of course, the latest….the lone ranger Anarchists. 🙂
