...late Uncle Bjarne...
Bjarne...that name sounds scandinavian?
Back to the question. Hero, idols etc are very big words for me. But somehow I'd say that most of you guys who bother answering my questions and replying to my threads or maybe just inspire me by doing what you are doing are "my heroes of the moment".
I admire all kinds of craftmanship!
I admired my late dads weldings...so well done that grinding/polishing wasn't needed.
I admired my uncle who was taught as a brick layer but made beautyfull racing kayaks
most of his working life. Now retired making beatyfull furnitures as a hobby.
I admire the beauty in american shaker furniture made by skilled carpenters using hand tools only.
I admire some of the late danish furniture designers who made danish design popular world wide.
I admire....every skilled person actually!
+1 on meeting and having a pint with Peter, Rick, Peter, Paul, Shane, Kev and all the rest of you guys...you're just too far away from little Denmark!
