The handiwork in question is actually this double mirror door wardrobe that I constructed last week.

Not without the help of a cat, naturally.

The handiwork is pretty much invisible in the picture, because it's all reflected in the mirror. But hey...

Oh and it's ecologically friendly as the mirror doors and sliding mechanism come from neighbours who were throwing them away. Recycled wardrobe...

Leave it to a poet to do the impossible: take a portrait of a mirror.

Hi Peter! I thought that was you. Still trying to figure what you're working on here - I know you've had shelving projects going. And it looks as though you have very good quality tools - my brother and my nephews would be quite envious. I quite like how the lamp behind you has burned a sun into the wall.

Prominent Paslode trim nailer, a connotation to handiwork seen & unseen - nailed this portrait.

A very unexpected image, which is quite interesting. Great focus on the eyes, but the tool box throws me off :) Nonetheless, interesting.
