    An Interesting Woodworking Job

    Here's an interesting short article about Don Williams, the senior furniture conservator at the Smithsonian.

    An Interesting Woodworking Job

    Oh, if I was only younger. I'd love to work with someone like that, in a place like that.

    I have always been in awe of every aspect of the Smithsonian. And I always knew there had to be someone (lots of someones) who repair/restore/maintain all those things.

    Never can get enough of it, whenever I get the chance to go there.

    Thanks Cynthia.

    That would be a fun, but intense job. I could see Dave doing something like that if it included enough time off for hunting.

    I've meet Don before, we actually do very similar work. I think Don still offer's classes @ the Smithsonian. At one time I thought about applying for a job their but the 19 mile commute into downtown is not my cup of tea.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
