    I was kinda disappointed that Chris didn’t clock his screws before filing them down. He must have had a tight deadline imposed by some editor he had to meet :-).

    I agree with Robert on Chuck’s article being cool & a welcome presence in the magazine. (especially in this issue)

    I look forward to reading more from Chuck & his hands on experience building & restoring furniture.

    The article by Chuck Bender is very cool. His writing has been a great welcome presence in PW. Nice to be reminded of Esherick’s use of off-cuts for his stools.

    But I am pretty sure those stools are butt-stools not step-stools.
