Cutting a Pepper by john cheng

I was cutting a pepper last night and found myself cleaning out the seeds by ruthlessly ripping them out only to find a few stragglers left behind inside the pepper. This video would have been helpful last night.

How to prepare and slice a bell pepper. Simple tutorial to help you when cooking with pepper. Great kitchen tip to help make food preparation easier and a useful knife skill.

Japanese Shipbuilding Technique Inspired Furniture By Jin Kuramoto by john cheng

As I get older, I find my interests shifting. One of those shifts is furniture. When I was younger, I hated going to furniture stores with my parents. I would trudge along bored or run around the store jumping and hiding on and around whatever pieces of furniture that could hold my weight. Now I find myself admiring various pieces of furniture wishing they were in my possession, but alas, it is yet another thing that I really don't need.

These articles of furniture inspired by Japanese shipbuilding techniques, by Jin Kuramoto and  Claesson Koivisto, have really caught my eye. They are extremely elegant even in though they are in the most pure form. There really is no fluff here, just the beauty of their base structure. See for yourself below or check them out in person if you are anywhere near the Stockholm Furniture Fair where they are on display.
