New products. Where do these ideas come from? We think about what would be a good addition to the pieces we already make. What would our customers like? What are they looking for? These ideas tend to roll around in our minds for weeks or months. Once we have a product in mind we spend a lot of time thinking about how will it work. How will it feel in a persons hand? How do we want it to look? Sketches and prototype follow. Sometimes the idea never really goes anywhere. Sometimes it becomes more clear. This is where Tom is really skilled. He will keep reworking the design until it is just right. Now we have a design. Next step How do we make it?
