There’s something really special about building something from scratch.  Sure, in a sense, we’re all standing on the shoulders of those who came before us and few things are well and truly new and unique.  But it is a true craftsman who learns a skill and puts that skill to good use making something where there was nothing before, whether it is cutting a file from raw steel or making a fine table out of oak timbers.
