Metal work is quite noisy.
Even when you master the skill, sawing is not a quiet business.
Filing to smooth the edges or adjust the shape is just as noisy.
Shaping a ring with a hammer is not something you do in the middle of the night.
Drilling holes or polishing makes noise too. Actually, the sound of the motor is not much different from what you hear at the dentist’s.
I love all those noises, I really do. They tell me that I’m at it, busy, moving ahead. I love the sounds of the studio.
Still, it is sometimes nice to do something quiet. The subtle sound of crochet or knitting is soft. The needles don’t overrule the music in the background, and you can still hear all the words of an audiobook or a podcast.
It is quiet time.
