The Moaning Chair

Above is Master Boardsmith, Roy Stewart, pictured in his "moaning chair". Howard Chappel put it best as:
""The boatbuilder (surfboard builder) is well advised to place a comfortable chair within easy walking distance, but out of sight of the project. When the builder has done some damn fool thing, like cut two left garboards, or put a drill bit through a newly varnished Honduras mahogany panel, they must immediately retire to the moaning chair, until the period of moaning is complete, lest they turn the whole project into firewood.""
