    Me, too.

    It's not as if original furniture looked worn.

    I'm horrified that people make brand new furniture made to look old.

    It's sacrilege.
    It's also the only line of furniture my mentor can sell.

    an angle to the cutting edge.

    The bottom is trying to go backwards,

    I was once asked why I didn't take my kids into the shop with me.

    The implication was that at 65 hours a week, I wasn't seeing enough of them, already.
