There are two ways to see a piece; one with your eyes and one with your hands...

This chair has tested my limits of vision in both senses, a curve feels right but looks odd, and another is visually perfect but has a tactile bulge.

I sit now, astride the piece, atop my saw bench. All the pressure is off the legs, but the joinery is tight. I can work all the parts as one or separately.

Now comes the music, Muse has been mine for the day. The rhythm matching my tools.

This is sweeping work, from simple form, to overall shape, past little details, I see now only the lines, the connections, transitions, breaks, the piece becomes.

Oh yea, and there's a rock...
