HANDCRAFTED, A Book Clint Harp

Seriously, I was in the store and I wasn’t even looking for a book.   However, this one book really caught my attention and wouldn’t let go of it. 

HANDCRAFTED  by Clint Harp   It’s a Touchstone book

And on the back of the book there is  a quote from Jimmy Carter   He says,  “Clint, a fellow craftsman from Georgia, shows how to live life as an adventure.  From the floor of his first shop  to the foundations of Habitat for Humanity houses to building furniture for the world to see, Clint Harp is living a  handcrafted life.   President Jimmy Carter.

I gather these quotes were put on the back of the book when Jimmy Carter was President.

And, Chip  Gaines, says this, “I’m so proud of Clint.   I’m proud of the husband and father he is, and I’m proud that he’s my friend.   He’s the kind of guy who just bears down and gets stuff done.   I’m glad he took the time to put his life story together and I”m honored to have played a small part .  Don’t be dumb…. read this book”.   – Chip Gaines

“A man who works with his hands is a laborer.   A man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman.  But a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist”.      –  Louis Nizer, Lawyer, writer and painter 


And , there’s more to the book than that.  If you can find this in your library or bookstore, ask for     Handcrafted   A  Woodworker’s Story

This is the temporary end to this story  . I”ll be back to finish reviewing the book

ARTFROMPERRY I take photographs and tell stories with photographs, . Everything in these photographs is exactly as it is supposed to be. Blurred, from a distance, sharp or not, colors varied from the average. These are not photographic mistakes nor anything to be corrected. These are exactly as I want them to be seen. As a pastime, I produce and direct television programs in parts of New York City, NYS USA UPDATE: Due to covid hitting our city, I temporarily stopped producing television since the studio required that we sign a seemingly illegal covid contract in order to have access to the studio. Considering a lawsuit to get the program back on the air again .
