A little while back, Front Porch Republic published a piece on Mortise & Tenon called “The Dignity of Craft”. The author, Will Lyon, seems to be more than a superficial reader – he’s quite attentive to the contours of our undergirding emphasis. I love reading such thoughtful interaction with our work. It’s by no means the case that all thoughtful interaction is wholly sympathetic to our vision, but Lyon’s is.
If you’re not familiar with Front Porch Republic, I highly recommend you explore their site. They write on themes such as “place, localism, community, decentralism, and conservation.” I’ve been a fan for years, and if you’re here on this blog for more than the woodworking tips, I bet you’ll find some chew-worthy writing at FPR.
