The heft and feel of a well-worn handle,
The sight of shavings that curl from a blade;
The logs in the wood pile, the sentiment of huge beams in an old-fashioned house;
The smell of fresh cut timber and the pungent fragrance of burning leaves;
The crackle of kindling and the hiss of burning logs.
Abundant to all the needs of man, how poor the world would be
Without wood.

Everard Hinrichs, quoted by Eric Sloane in A Reverence for Wood

Wonderfully done promotion of glass products! Just think of the potential of combining efforts of hardwood adorned trim with the design component of glass in this case. The glass industry probably has much deeper pockets than our industry has! Just thinking out of the box!
