Once long ago when I was googling for something quite different, I came
across the text of a chatroom visit with Frank Klausz. It sidetracked
me for quite a while. Someone asked "Frank: square or round bench
Frank was VERY definite. Square. They must be square. He and his father
did not spend time with the chisels making square holes because they
looked better. Round dogs will lose their grip with certain odd-shaped
pieces, says he. THEY MUST BE SQUARE!
"I hope I do not hear any more questions about round bench dogs!", says
I got the distinct impression he felt very strongly about it.
I use round myself. Maybe I'll make square holes in the next bench.
