OK, I fess up. I like it. But I didn't make it.
Pretty awful design.
I've never seen anything "artsy" made from tools that didn't want to make me vomit. This is no exception.
Your endgrain is like your bellybutton. Yes, I know you have it. No, I don't want to see it.

Sure wasn't me. Oh well......different strokes.......
On the other hand, I still have five fingers.
The worst thing is that terrible "steam punk" wire cage lamp,haphazardly mounted on the ill curved (why make the lamp lean way over?) flex shaft.
I don't hate it. I'll be honest. I don't.
I am still not sure if I like it, but I don't hate it. It's not a saw with a mountain scene painted on the plate, so it has that going for it.
(Pointing to Megan Fitzpatrick for the assist...)
Oh man is that a shiek? (sp?) I think the fact that its carbide tipped makes it even tackier!
EDIT My wife wants to know if that is indeed Elvis can anyone confirm

Those drawers are totally hand-dovetailed, though.
Wasn't me, I am too busy doing IRON body planes. I do have a "Trouble Light" for working on cars ( No Bulb, though) but i doubt if i can make it stand up on it's cord. What a waste.....
Might a cheap Skil saw blade under elvis? i once had a Shop Sign painted on an old Credo blade. About all it was good for....

When I made a 100 lb. aerial bomb into a lamp my wife was aghast. I asked her what kind of shade would complement it, she just didn't think it was possible.
So, after looking at the plane lamp I'm not making any noise about superior artistic ability. Or any artistic ability at all.
One thing to note is that if they used rayon covered wire it likely doesn't have UL approval.
