“Isn’t it nice when things just work?”
so said the Honda Accord Ad a few years ago.
Last week I felt a sense of satisfaction when an idea just worked at first attempt and sheet copper turned into flower shaped candle holders. So yes, it is very nice when things just work!
Mind you, it is not always simple and straightforward and some projects just take forever and still leave me with the “Can do better” feeling. But sometimes a plan just comes together. More than anything else it is a massive confidence boost for someone like me, who is still learning about coppersmithing, shaping, texturing and brazing.
