Yeah, I don't like that style at all, it's not rustic, for me it's not even a style. I guess the style could be call simplistic or even "stickframe" style. If some people like that great, it is a niche and we do need niches to survive. Looking at the prices maybe I need to raid mine.

My taste says Enzo Mari stuff has zero character compared to what the guy in the video made. It is all personal preference after tall.

This table cost over $3000.00, the chair over $380.00. Where are the clients for this type stuff? If there were many we would all be rich.

These guys are making a mockery of wood working, IMHO.

That chair is certainly a visual joke.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Jeez, that looks like a poorly made picnic table.

Holy Cow, just saw the chair picture. Looks like it was made with pallet wood. Bet it will be uncomfortable sitting too.
