Each trade has its tools. These tools are for working steel. They are small and quiet tools, but they will shape ships. They will set angles and square corners, aligning the forces of the universe in patterns that will defy logic and allow a ship, of all things, to float. And not only float, but remain upright through storms, pursuing its catch and bringing its crew safely home.

But. A tool is nothing until it is used. Until a person picks it up and applies it with skill.

In such work there is strength and brute force, heat and spark, but also grace and stillness, dignity and the miracles of physics.
