What’s your plywood?

“When youâ??re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, youâ??re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. Youâ??ll know itâ??s there, so youâ??re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.” – Steve Jobs

What’s your plywood?

PS: Thanks for raising the bar, Steve. Be well.


One reply on “What’s your plywood?”

This reminds me of the how the people who built the great basilicas during the Renaissance Period put attention to the smallest detail wherein they put the effort to finish a piece of the basilica really well even though it will be placed at the top of the dome wherein nobody else will see it.

I suppose this message of Steve Job’s makes more sense because it was applied at Apple, Inc. Even the innards of their machines look very well done.
