There are works of art that reside in museums and that is where they belong.
Then there are objects that you can hold in your hands that to me are something more than museum art. A fine camera (think Hasselblad), a pistol or rifle that has been machined and gun smithed to a point where it is as close to perfection as possible and certain hand tools.
The absolutely meticulous work and fit, the beauty of God's creation in the figure of the wood and that it serves a purpose don't bring any other examples to mind.
Did I mention I like them? WOW!
