A young fool had spent seven years building a beautiful small boat by hand.
An entire year was taken sketching out the design, throwing away hundreds of ideas until he hit upon the flawless one.
He’d traveled hundreds of miles to find and fell the perfect cedar tree. He milled the strips himself. He’d planed and sanded for months.
Neighbors started coming to his home and sitting for hours, watching him labor. They were all amazed by his skill, focus, and passion.
Local blogs picked up the story and ran profiles about the young fool, and his ambitious project.
