Re: The A2 Steel Debate Going on Elsewhere

Their routine looked really deliberate and could be sped up by a factor of four, but the real accomplishment is that they've found customers who will pay enough for them to make that type of furniture.

As far as I recall, most of the work is done by machines and jigging, but not in a rush. If they did more of the underlying work by hand, they'd be faster with the smoothing. Doesn't detract from the fact that the furniture is beautifully done.

Charlie cannot be engaged in any kind of technical discussion, though, because he'll never show his own work, just criticize others and shift the subject rather than answering questions. Bpd? And sometimes come up with fanciful scenarios to a delusional level. He's convinced that the piece of wood that Ellis photographed in my article was secretly done by me in some strange nonsensical conspiracy, and that Lee valley works behind the scenes to get him banned from forums. It's sad to say that as a hobbyist, I've learned something from just about everyone on this board, but in two decades of oppositional posts from Charlie, I've literally learned nothing other than that he doesn't make a living on commissions. I am thankful for the presence of actual full time makers like you and George who respond with usable advice.
