    Good way of putting it Dan - and I think a good parallel is furniture - hand made and crafted.

    I used to do some woodwork and put great effort in to my work - in a sense - part of someone's life is embodied within the creation - and that has a value hard to quantify, in particular with fine workmanship. Of course way too often, the monetary return is not enough to cover all the loving care - except maybe to pay a dollar an hour!!

    I am reminded too of some of my machining prototype jobs way back - many many hours of dedicated work, both on machines and by hand - to produce often something quite small - but nenvertheless, time and effort went in - hard tho to get a fair return sometimes.

    I think we all have a choice with our buying - and for those who wish to pay (and can afford) big sums for custom - anything - no prob's here. I have always appreciated quality.

    That's because you are buying a 'little piece of the maker'. A truly gifted craftsman pours his heart into his creations.
    The same used to be said for the samurai sword. It was said that a piece of the makers soul went into every one of his creations......
