It’ll be a long time before these old eyes can accept a Torx, or even a Robertson square-drive screw on a piece of fine, heritage-level furniture. For knocking out a new kitchen, well, okay, use the screws with a more positive drive. Personally, I love seeing the fussiness on a piano hinge or cabinet latch. My junior-high Practical Arts instructor gushed over how at the Rolls-Royce factory, workers had to align every visible Phillips head screw to an ‘X’ when installing walnut or rosewood trim in the interiors. Should we shortchange our own fine furniture with a feature that shows we took an easy way out? Good point, however, COTL!
