Primavera – Spring

Apesar de ainda faltarem uns dias para o Equinócio, por aqui, a Primavera já chegou. Veio na passada semana com este casal amigo se andorinhas que se vê na fotografia e que decidiram fazer o seu abrigo por de baixo de uma das varandas cá de casa!

Desde o início do ano que tenho andado às voltas com o caminho a seguir com estes projectos de “trazer por casa”. Um dos meus objectivos é de passar do actual nível de “curioso” para “aquele que ama a sua arte” – o artesão.

Informei do que é necessário para me tornar um artesão certificado e de pleno direito.
Descobri que existe um processo trabalhoso mas acessível. E desdobra-se em 3 areas: a pessoal no que diz respeito às competências, a oficina propriamente dita e por último a documentação do processo.

É nesta última area que se inclui esta postagem. Um ‘blog’ é perfeito para este efeito… mas tem de ter uma estratégia e ser coerente e consistente… Os que me leêm já devem ter adivihado… Definitivamente não é o caso da presente publicação.

Por isso quer avance ou não com o meu processo de candidatura nos próximos meses tenho de fazer mudanças radicais neste blog. O que significa encerrar este e começar de novo.

Por isso um bem haja a todos os que me acompanharam na minha descoberta do amor pela arte de trabalhar madeira!

Although there are still a few days left for the Equinox, Spring has arrived. It came last week with this friendly couple of swallows that you see in the photograph and they decided to make their shelter here, under one of the balconies!

Since the beginning of the year I have been struggling with the way forward with these DIY projects. One of my goals is to move from the current level of “curious guy” to “one who loves his art” – the craftsman.

I even searched information of what is necessary to become a certified and full-fledged craftsman. I discovered that there is a laborious but accessible process.
And it is divided into 3 areas: the personnel with regard to skills, the workshop itself and finally the documentation of the process.

It is in this last area that this post is included.
A blog is perfect for this purpose … but Ineed to have a strategy and be coherent and consistent … Those who read me must have worked it out… Definitely not the case in this so called ‘publication’.

So whether or not I go throw the progress with my application process in the coming months I have to make radical changes in this blog. What it means is to end this and start over.

So, all the best to you all who accompanied me in my discovery of the love of the art of working wood!

  1. I don’t see a reason why you should end this blog but rather you should begin your journey and start expanding this blog. There is no need to start over since you have not begun, so my friend put on your shoes and begin the journey.

  2. Antonio,

    I just stumbled on your blog for the first time to see you are closing it down.

    My parents were born in the US and lived in Portugal when they were younger, up until WWII. My father was in Sandomil and my mother was outside Santarem. Portugal is such a beautiful country and I love the food and the people.

    Best of luck with your endeavors.

    • Thank you Steve for stoping by and take the time to comment!
      It’s not quite a full shut down. It’s more a pause to ‘fine tuning’!

      I know Sandomil, I’ve been there a few times and I live 20 minutes from Santarém.
