Boy howdy, do I agree! Design is _much_
harder than woodworking to my way of
thinking, and I may be the biggest failure I know in that regard. I have yet
to be pleased with anything I've designed thus far ... including what I am
working on at the moment. I often get the feeling that I should've quit on
those 2X4 projects back in high school.
I would think that prototypes are a must for good original design.
Unfortunately I can rarely afford the luxury, in either materials, or time.
I try to shortcut that with scale drawings as best I can, but still fall far
short of what I consider pleasing.
I am going to go out this evening and pickup a copy of the magazine ... to
go with the books I have on furniture design, which haven't helped thus far.
