You should shoot a video detailing the intricate process. Try not to use the thousands of dollars worth of equipment that I’m sure it took to make the multiple prototypes, but show how the average DIYer could elevate their skills to this level.

How dare you use my design without permission. Oh well another idea I will not get credit for.

The graceful lines (line?), the wonderful organic genius simply takes one’s breath away! I am particularly inspired by the use of negative space. It is a profound comment on man’s juxtaposition of the natural and advanced technology showing that Man CAN live in harmony with the planet and its’ wonders, yet the brooding atmosphere in which you have framed this work portends great conflict if we listen not to our individual muses. You, Sir, are a true visionar

Fussy – Very eloquently put sir. You have a wonderful command of the English langauge. I can’t remember when I last read a sentence with ‘portends’ in it. So nice to see in these days of hurried text messages and grammatically incorrect emails.

Goddahavefun – Nobody can knock it if it works right? I was just wondering if the shed is part of the rack or the rack is part of the shed and whether or not you intend to put a finish on it or just let it age naturally?

That’s funny, Steve!

I guess we could create aesthetic masterpieces, but I’ve often wondered why we go through so many troubles just for our clamps?

But hopefully, that single board is well flattened and properly thicknessed. You wouldn’t want people to have a negative impression of your craftsmanship!

My hat’s off to your ability to draw the eye to your work by using a contrasting wood from the substrate to which it is mounted. I’m sure many hours of “visualization” went into this piece…....perfection, simply perfection!!

Yeah, I wonder if he filled the grain before finishing with French polish? Because we all need a clamp rack that we can see our reflection in!

When you sell it as a kit, will it come with nails, screw or would we supply our own ?
I am guessing clamps would NOT be included.

Very nice. I especially like the photography skill showing the contrast of the new wood against the old wood. :)
