Manufacturing, managing, retailing and designing furniture have been a huge part of my life.

Making and maintaining machines or constructing various add ons to achieve certain tasks meant that I became a jack of all trades with a healthy interest in how most anything works.

Old patents interest me because they are like looking at a notebook from a makers mind and with the benefit of hindsight it is interesting to contemplate and comment on what appears to have been going through the inventors mind and make some casual observations based on my own experiences.
