LostArtPress on InstagramA particularly rude student called this a “vanity project,” as it wasn’t for a customer but for my home. It hurt my feelings for a few hours before I realised he was absolutely correct. It is a vanity. Without vanity, nothing exceptional, nothing special would ever be made. It requires an element of vanity to dream a different dream then try to bring it to life. Vain, maybe; arrogant, sure. I put my hand up to all of that. But this is about inner belief more than anything. I think this piece will be worth all the effort to drag it screaming into the daylight of existence. If I am wrong, it will end up in the dumpster of history. If I am right, someone 200 years from now will appreciate the effort we took to get it “right.” Don’t be afraid of the dumpster of history. — from “The Intelligent Hand” by David Bennington Savage #The_Intelligent_HandBevel gauges are at the heart of my work. Many students have asked for recommendations so I picked up a @blue_spruce_tools bevel gauge. It’s fantastic. Details on our blog. #neversponsoredThe modules for this cup cabinet are based on the size of the cups. After mocking-up, I sized the side of the cabinet to be a certain depth (around 5"). I found it convenient to use this dimension (the cabinet side) as the module. — from “By Hand and Eye” by George Walker and James Tolpin @jimtolpin @georgewalker.design #By_Hand_and_Eye
