  • How Important Clamping Is For Woodworking
    A little story about Car-Carpentry. In Short I think about people that are skilled carpenters the same way I hear people describe software developers. Carpenters do some sort of black magic to make things we interact every day with. Most of the time the black magic they perform is so potent that we don’t even notice how impressive somethings build quality is, or the elegance with which it was put together until it breaks.

    In Short The Current Situation Its not unusual for me to stay up to 1am largely by accident having been gripped by some late night motivation to work on some project, normally on my computer.
