Many thanks to Alan Smith, of the London College of Furniture, for checking the sections on abrasives and plastics, and for supplying new material on computer controlled machinery.

The first and last lesson of the useful arts is, that Nature tyrannizes over our works. They must be conformed to her law, or they will be ground to powder by her omnipresent activity. Nothing droll, nothing whimsical will endure. Nature is ever interfering with Art. You cannot build your house or pagoda as you will, but as you must. There is a quick bound to your caprice.

Emerson Essay on Art, 1841

The inferior man always embellishes his mistakes.
