I took a furniture design class with @pekovichwoodworks this weekend. At first I was disappointed in my own imagination. Watching him draw a piece effortlessly and then drawing the same junky boxes over and over was annoying. Then I realized I'm on day one of sketching furniture and he's on day 6,000. The real breakthrough came when we started mocking things up. This is based on a bad drawing I did quickly. It's nothing new but it is new to me. Make a leg and a quarter of all the other parts. Stick it between two mirrors and bam(!) you can see a really convincing version. Take it apart and change it all you want in minutes. Killer technique and well worth the price of the class.
