He knew as much about woodworking as I did about beadweaving.
Nevertheless, I picked up a needle and a thread and he picked up a planer and a few planks.
His first attempts were small and sweet and yet, when we moved and needed a table for the patio, he offered to make what we couldn't afford.
He said the word "mahogany" and I of course, had my doubts....
all of which were quickly laid to rest...
Turns out, they use mahogany to build ships.
Sturdy, weatherproof and handmade by my better half.
One to pass down to the generations.
