And take a close look at their pictured examples[^]:
• The rear legs of the chair will break as soon as someone sits on it.
• The floor rails of the computer desk will survive just long enough for you to finish connecting all the cables, then they'll break, and the desk will tip over backward.
• The same goes for the drawing table -- those legs with the grain going the wrong way won't last five minutes, with someone leaning on it.


Look at how they rendered the woodgrain in the boards for the bookcase in those cutting instructions (or anywhere else they were cutting 2x2 or 2x4's in their slide deck). They're wrong by 90*; whoever did their graphics just always did vertical wood grain.

Everywhere they had something that looked like it should be cut from a 2x4/etc instead of plywood or a slab the source board they show is the right shape for a 2x4/etc, so I think they just fubarred the graphics.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
