“I read this article in FX newsletter by Aidan Walker, a former furniture maker”

Is the age of automation killing off the craftsperson?

“Being a craftsman myself, I think there’s a very happy marriage between automation precision and craftsmanship. Today the cost of hand-making furniture from start to finish is so prohibitive and takes so long. Machine made furniture is almost disposable when compared to the perfect imperfections of a piece that is hand-made from scratch. A hand-made article is cherished, you instinctively want to look after it, nurture it, polish it.

So a combination of the two is an ideal compromise, the clean accuracy of an automated cut, secret dovetailed drawer with the warmth and beauty of finishing by hand. Compromise, the secret to any happy marriage!” Rupert.
