Box making – just as hard as it looks. Have we mentioned before at Slow Industries how difficult it is to measure properly, cut straight lines and – holy mother of Jesus – make things square? That’s why all these photos with the cutting mat are at an angle. It makes it more difficult for you, the reader, to tell just how off things might be.

Slow Industries is committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment for its employees. For all the heavy lifters on our team, a boatload of delicious, nutritious vanilla-flavored whey protein is now available in the break room, next to the PVA. (The whey protein also provides a convenient size comparison for the PVA. And vice versa.)
