Observation, testing, retesting, works.

Yup. A lot of ppl don’t realize we don’t need math for most things. It’s only a handy shortcut for those it’s a handy shortcut for… and sometimes it’s used to build interesting things. But we could do the same without mathematics just fine. Observation, testing, retesting, works.

I’m a visual / listen / touch person myself. Does it work? Great! Doesn’t work? Tweak it. I’ve tried building things based on “math only” only to find out that 2×4’s aren’t. Wood swells and shrinks. Screws don’t always cooperate. Clamps don’t always stay in place. Mathmatically perfect cuts can be WRONG.

So, trial and error and I always keep a LOT of excessive material available for mistakes. smile emoticon
