wedged tenons

Today I have been assembling the table tops, and soon will have completed tables. This is not a technique for rapid production, but a technique that will provide centuries of service. So why would someone make something that will last longer than he or she will? Can it be that a craftsman might want to leave something of meaning that expresses skill, caring, and reverence for wood?

    I truly hope that at least some of my work will outlast me. Otherwise, why do it?
