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
