Craftsman's Delight is Tribune reporter Eric Gwinn's story of his foray into the world of craft, part of the continuing DIY Daredevil stories. Eric attended a class at the Chicago Bauhaus Academy in Rogers Park to do a woodworking project.

About the experience, he says, "This was about aligning my mind and body to the task at hand. It wasn't about working against myself; it was about working with the wood."
FYI: According to the article, the next session of classes at Bauhaus are beginning soon...
