After a delightful visit to Odin leather, we returned to our hotel to catch up on work. The following morning, fueled by coffee and the excitement to meet our next maker, we headed to Christopher's home, where he operates from his well-equipped garage. As we arrived, we were greeted with freshly brewed coffee and a box of delicious donuts, a kind gesture from Christopher and his wife. Over coffee and donuts, we engaged in conversation, getting to know Christopher better and easing his nerves about his first podcast . As hosts, it was our priority to ensure his comfort and make the experience as effortless as possible.
After coffee we moved to Christopher's workshop, where he generously offered us a demonstration of his woodworking skills. Watching him transform a raw piece of wood into a beautiful bowl was an incredible experience. His talent and expertise left us in awe, and we couldn't help but appreciate the artistry and dedication that went into each creation.
After Christopher's demonstration, he kindly invited us to try our hand at woodworking. While I stayed behind the camera, capturing the magical moments, Jack eagerly embraced the opportunity. Under Christopher's patient guidance, Jack discovered a newfound love for woodworking. It was an unforgettable morning and afternoon, witnessing the passion of a craftsman and the joy it brought to someone discovering a new skill
Returning to the task at hand, we settled down for the podcast recording. Immersed in Christopher's world, we delved deep into his journey and what’s brought him to this craft. The 45-minute conversation captured the essence of Christopher's journey which we know you will enjoy. To hear the full podcast and dive into Christopher's fascinating world, we encourage everyone to tune in below.
After the podcast, our appetites led us to a local BBQ joint and then we continued our evening at the Fort Worth Stockyards at the rodeo. It was our first rodeo experience - it was crazy!
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Christopher and his wife for their warm hospitality, opening their home and workspace to us. Our time with Christopher allowed us to witness the artistry of woodworking, discover Jack’s hidden talents, and create lasting memories. From the podcast conversation to our first rodeo, this day was a true testament to the power of human connection and the joy that can be found in exploring new passions.
