In his genes
We have three guests in our shop over the next couple of weeks. My nephew and his oldest two kids are in the valley for some events on the next few weekends so we decided to keep them busy on the weekdays. Duane (the father) has worked for us occasionally for short periods through the years and is exceptionally good at all he tackles. The kids have never worked for us previously. Sidney is a natural. Only sixteen, he is very confident and eager to learn. We assigned him one of the tougher jobs in the shop, tying on the galvanized lath. He needed little instruction before he set to work. By day's end he had finished four difficult pieces. AMAZING! I think these skills are in his genes.
