You are a true craftsman when it comes to writing. This story brought tears to my eyes and a lasting impression of such a great truth. I'm going to have my husband read this before he sets out to do the finishing trim work on our windows.

This is a beautiful piece. you grab the reader immediately and lay out the inner turmoil that the young MC is experiencing. I think you will touch so many people with this piece. Great job.

Awesome. Beautiful. Magnificent. Wow. I am so touched by this story. My dad used to work with wood, and made many birdhouses. The mention of "coffee cans and mason jars" brought a smile to my face, because that's how my dad stored nails, nuts and bolts, and screws. You brought a lot of memories back to me with your story. Thank you!

One word - BEAUTIFUL.

The title hooked me, for I too am a woodworker. And the rest of the story rang true and was delightful to read. Well done.

Your title applies to sewing wood-working, and as you so beautifully portrayed, to the steps we carve out on life's journey.

Well done! Congratulations
