    I dont care for the look. The industrial look is not me but I respect your creative nature and trying things outside the box.

    Great artsy piece.I did get an idea while watching you bend the wood.If you had a couple of pieces of 1/2″ or 3/4″ square scrap on pipe clamp boards it may help prevent the wood from wanting to “turn” on the pipe

    Steve … I love the design and the look! Thanks for the tips on bending the oak and introducing the concept of Brutalist style architecture. I went and did a Google image search for brutalist architecture for the Atlanta area and spotted a few buildings I recognized. Enjoyed the tutorial!

    A pair of “safety glasses” might make it less scary. Yes, no, maybe. I vote “yes”. Good video as they all are. Thanks.

    Did not see the link for the new tshirt. Love your work. I am a 62 year old beginner in woodworking living in a basement apartment so its a challenge. Made an version of your older update to a flatware drawer this weekend using hand tools and a stapler.
    Thanks

    Not really my thing. I do bent laminations to create oak back scratchers. They are very popular because the bend in the scratcher really hit that “spot” on the back.

    I like your approach and while some people say they don’t care for this look, I think it’s got great potential. The industrial look is all about contrast in materials and styling. Your hardware is too clean and should be worked over with a blow torch or something like that. I love the bent wood effect, but the brackets holding the cord in place is distracting. I would have tried using two lats with a groove routed into the both of them, then glued together to accommodate the wiring inside. That would have been a nicer effect. Keep up the great work though, your videos remain a great inspiration for many ambitious mortals out there!

    If you think that style is brutalistic, wait until you see all the comments from the trolls. (Now those can be brutal!)

    I love the lamp. Did you put the lamp shade on it to see what it would look like? Like you said you either love it or hate it.

    How do you make your templates from sketchup overlap with the crosshairs on them? I have made a template to make a canoe paddle but I can not find out how to make the pages overlap so I can line up the crosshairs anywhere! I’d appreciate the help. thanks! your work and videos have helped/inspired me a ton as I’ve gotten into woodworking. thanks again!

    Wow! I didn’t expect to see such a table lamp. It is absolutely great and it would be cool for my table.
