I visited my Grndfather on Saturday, to celebrate his 81st birthday. I really admire him. He's got a great sense of humour, is always up for extra dessert, and treats my grandmother with love and respect. He teases her a lot, which is hilarious to watch. She's a bit gullible, which just encourages him.
A few years ago he spent a fair amount of time building a small replica sailing ship. He only had photos and a few small drawings to work from, but he created the ship from individually cut pieces of wood, each custom cut by hand. The detail he achieved is remarkable. Each joint and each knot was by hand. I can only imagine how many hours he put into it.
