[YAK] Not exactly a bench tip


I was discussing problem solving online with SunHotMoon, one of the
many great metalworkers I’ve met on Orchid. I wrote to her of a
technique I learned from one of Charles Lewton Brain’s excellent
Workshops: Look at the work from every conceivable angle, place it
upside down, on a mirror, on a Lazy Susan, or place it directly in
your path, so you confront it daily. Then if the piece is not up to
your vision, the problem may become clear to you. This advice has
helped me any number of times. Thank you Charles.
