My Brother

My oldest brother is a craftsman. He enjoys building beautiful things. He's furnished his home as well as the homes of his three boys with finely-crafted wood furniture, each home with a different furniture style. He's restored a century old house and remodeled several others. Kathy and I treasure a couple of his smaller wood creations in our house.

Over the last eight or ten years, he's moved away from crafting in wood to restoring old cars, resurrecting them from literal rust heaps. He was working on a 1930 Chevrolet when we visited him and his wife last spring. That afternoon, he took me for a ride in his first restoration, a 1929 Chevy. His wife gave me this picture of it for my blog.
