Favorite Tool Survey - Enter To Win Signed Wendell Castle Poster - Imaginegrove

Wendell Adopted Rules
1. If you are in love with an idea you are no judge of its beauty or value.

2. It is difficult to see the whole picture when you are inside the frame.

3. After learning the tricks of the trade, don't think you know the trade.

4. We hear and apprehend what we already know.

5. The dog that stays on the porch will find no bones.

6. Never state a problem to yourself in the same terms it was brought to you.

7. If it's offbeat or surprising it's probably useful.

8. If you do not expect the unexpected, you will not find it.

9. Don't get too serious.

10. If you hit the bullseye every time the target is too near.

What tips might you add?

Never had heard of the guy before now, so googled him. Can't say I like any of his work. And definitely don't want a poster, signed by him or not. Can't say I like his rules of thumb either.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Scott the forum rules prohibit links to sites where you have to register to do anything. As a result I have to close this thread. If you want to run the same poll through the forum's polling ability then you can but if there is a prize involved then you should run it through Admin so contact Cricket and discuss it with her.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
