A Slide Show for Some Inspiration
« on: October 19, 2013, 07:20 AM »
I just watched this slide show featuring work by Michael Fortune.  Thought it might be something to share.

Enjoy and have a GREAT day in the shop!

I believe that it is a Flash slide show.  You might want to check to make sure Flash is enabled.

I got to meet Michael several years ago and was so impressed by him. Where I see a box cabinet, he will see - well you see it in the slide show!!! Just amazing vision. Just the most down-to-earth guy you will ever meet.

Thanks Peter. I would have missed this otherwise.
I like his approach to the building and design of his pieces.
