Thanks. You are soooo right. My son was deeply offended when he was accused of only trying to sell his wood work on A2K. He, Butrflynet and I knew better than to attempt to do that.
My son, Stugotz, is recovering from four years of difficult surgery and severe pain. He has not been able to work and, as result, he could not find any hospitals or doctors who would give him the surgeries he needed. Finally, when he moved to Arizona, he found a physician and hospital who would operate on him.
The first surgery was to replace his long time damaged right knee leg. Like mother, like son, I guess. The second surgery this year was to replace his long time damaged right hip. A painful recovery finally ended this month and he could walk and stand for longer times in his garage wood shop.
My son was finally was able to have the strength to start creating his beloved collection of wood work. It's been four years since he's been able to work in his wood shop and it's a joy to see him at it again.
I have one of his wood pieces in my living room, which Osso can see when she comes to my home for Christmas dinner prepared by Butrflynet.
My son discovered a number of A2K people who enjoy making wood work, such as Farmerman. They've found a new friendship with their common interest. My son thought A2Kers would enjoy seeing what can be achieved with special woods.
I hope my son will enjoy A2K and the ability to share information.
