More than a month ago I mentioned my visit to the UK to see A. again and our little trip to Hobbycraft, where I purchased some really good looking big buttons. As we are both the type of people who look at something and think ”How was this made?” immediately (and unlike me, A. also has some skills), we thought about making wooden buttons that could be painted or decoupaged or decorated in some other way and how nice they would be. A few hours later, A. brought me a few round buttons that he made out of a spare piece of wood. He made them nice and smooth and some time after that rough square ones followed. After that some of them got painted. And after that I started to feel scared that I turned a professional piano re-builder into a button manufacturer.
