I make what I really want to make, and worry about where it’s going to end up later. I think if you get too caught up in the practicality aspect, you will limit your woodworking pleasure significantly.

Jay: I feel your pain. That sounds exactly like my wife. I thought all women were supposed to be great interior decorators. The funny thing is, she can go to someone else’s house that may be decorated with a pleasing mixture of styles, and she thinks it looks great. But in our own home, I always get the “that doesn’t match our stuff” response.
