Yes, wood is Matt's thing. But he's always been tempted to create with fabric. Less dust. Oh, and did I say he was a boat guy, too? Way back, he found a book called Baidarka, by George Dyson. This book became the source of a long fascination with skin on frame boats. And back when I gave more creative gifts, I sent a copy of this book to Mr. Dyson to sign and send back.
This summer, he's built not one, but two for our children and one for himself.
