Solid wood furniture embodies the age of the tree itself. Crafted by the deft hands of a carpenter into furniture, these pieces accompany their new owners, accumulating their value for future generations. The furniture made by the hands of artisans becomes a beautiful medium for people to connect with nature. Before becoming a carpenter, Ah Sing was a commercial photographer with over a decade of experience. He transitioned into carpentry in 2014, essentially making a mid-career switch. He underwent only two weeks of training in solid wood furniture making. After grasping the basic concepts, he learned the use of tools and machinery operations on his own. This situation led him to break away from tradition and develop his unique personal style. He loves cats, which is reflected in the feline-shaped legs of many of his creations. He favors joinery techniques, minimizing the use of metal components, believing they compromise the integrity of the wood. He has a penchant for rounding the edges of his works and encourages visitors to touch his pieces, with signs reading 'please touch and feel my works,' urging attendees to truly feel them. His passion for wood and attention to detail lend his pieces a solid, gentle charm. He speaks of the path of mastering a craft as a five-part story: Belief, Doubt, Enlightenment, Understanding, and Expression. Eventually, one can establish their own unique style. He describes himself as being in the second phase, with a long journey ahead. His dream is simply to continue doing what he loves...

The lives of autistic individuals are filled with challenges at various stages of their development. Especially after they leave school and enter the workplace, even more challenges await them. In December 2021, the Census and Statistics Department released a territory-wide survey on persons with disabilities and chronic diseases. The survey revealed that, in Hong Kong, there are 22,400 people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), of which 10,500 are aged over 15 and only 2,500 are employed. Local support services for autistic people have focused on in-school training. It wasn’t until 2018, that the government set up support centres for teenagers with high functioning autism. Currently, there is a half-year waiting period for services at the center, reflecting the high demand for these services. How can we improve the employment prospects of people with autism? What can be done to help autism persons to integrating into the workforce?
