A visit with Brian David Johnson

Brian David Johnson is this master woodworker... his work is so, SO beautiful.
And he designed such a quick but still very tinker-y project for the kids to do, it was so great. They all got to pick a piece of wood and design a little vase. Brian cut it with his mondo industrial bandsaw (that was so exciting and hypnotic to watch) and then the kids got to drill a hole in their piece, into which fit an adorable little glass test tube. Add water and flower and Voila! An exquisite little piece made out of beautiful materials that kids can really take pride in.
