Imperfection

I think I need to interject something here. This home I am currently working on is totally out of the template of what I am used to. Perfection here is imperfection. To make something flawless here is to make it with flaws. This is actually a hard concept for me to overcome. A perfect fit is unacceptable. A door must look like it was removed from a 100 year old barn, stripped, refinished, and installed here. That is not a look I am used to providing. In all my years of finish carpentry, flawless wood and the flawless joining of it was priority. Here, it is the opposite. However, to say that I am not having fun would be untrue. And I am learning new things. I guess, I am expanding my horizons.
