Recently, I was watching Neil Lamens’ interview (Part 1 and Part 2) with Wendell Castle. Neil did a great job talking with Mr. Castle about his approach to the craft and art of woodworking and his approach to design.

I wrote about my thoughts on the interview and what Mr. Castle’s words meant to me in this post on my blog. Take a look and give me your thoughts. I’d be interested in hearing your perspectives. Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the reference.

Yes – one must practice everyday. I liked the part about the pencil sketch everyday.

Simple is elegant – why is Shaker such a popular style?

Ya gotta make mistakes or you are not learning.

good food for thought.
