    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.

    Ask me why I use hand tools, and I'll tell you

    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.

    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.

    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.
