OK, throw rocks if you will, and I have no knowledge of the Shaker design, but I think the bright blue pattern design takes away from the otherwise fantastic build of the chair. Certainly better than anything that I could ever imagine to undertake, just saying! But blue is all I see!
I have a confession to make. I still buy Craftsman hand tools - wrenches, screwdrivers, pliers, socket sets, etc. Been using them for well over 40 years and they've never failed me. Actually, I rarely buy them because I'm using the ones I bought 20 years and more ago.
Probably made by Wen - LOL.
That's like saying what happens to the CNC guy if the power grid goes down from an EMP. Could happen but... Anyway, point taken.
I think the small shop CNC's are much like the automated processes in many manufacturing plants. I'm not discounting the computer skills of the person using it. I have a friend who uses a CNC and he's obsessed with axis calculations. I just think the infinitely repeatable precision of computerized cuts removes the human aspect from the equation. But then I still don't like instant replay in football
I bet the OP decided to try leather working. He has no idea how opinionated those people are - LOL.
