Gary Spykman's blog. I am a designer/maker of furniture (and other things on occasion, but mostly furniture). My blog entries cover a range of topics - the philosophical and the practical, the experimental and the time-tested, things ephemeral and things built to last. One post might be about working with a client on a new furniture idea, the next might be about climbing through stacks of lumber, looking for the perfect board, and the next might be about 3D cad design on the computer. But, no matter the topic, it is all viewed through the lens of design.
