    When emails arrive marketing the tools you would like to have or a promotion or sale is advertised, what initiates your motivation to buy or pass?  Or perhaps while working on a project you’d benefit in quality, safety, or time to finish what would move you to get that in your hands?  It’s a tough call.  Discretionary savings is often inversely proportional to the desirability of certain tools.  So when, if ever, do you pull the string to buy?

    Andrew Davis has some thoughts about that in his newest Bevel Cut article on Tool Shopping.

    Andrew Davis brings to us a fascinating description of his Inside-Out Live Edge Mirror Frame.  Starting with a slab of ash, Andrew transforms that with some creative cuts to build a frame for a mirror that gives a natural, “edgy” appearance.  Andrew preserves the natural contours of the slab with a thoughtful consideration over where the frame segments are made.  The eye-popping appearance is only surpassed by the approach that Andrew took to make it.
