TM reader and photo pool member lungofish took on the project recently of building himself a drafting table, which includes the pictured hinged stand. We thought we’d send him a pair of gloves for two reasons:
First, we’re a fan of using metal in building things like this. In the spirit of “When you have only a hammer, everything looks like a nail,” most people want to build everything out of wood — or everything out of metal. Often, the easiest solution is a combination of both.
Second, we offer props to anyone who a) owns a welding helmet with a flame job and b) notes that he wants to replace the sticker-type with real flames. Awesome.
Check out the photo pool for additional pictures of his work, including the finished project.
