“To work with Jack White, to observe him get the job done at anything… is to witness the mind of an artist as it explores and problem solves,” Third Man’s Ben Blackwell claimed in a assertion. “In carpentry and inside style and design, currently being in Jack’s presence during the ideation approach, the hypotheticals and head-tilting can be both equally inspiring and maddening. There’s no reason a making demands to have acoustical tiles, tin ceilings, or shiny yellow flooring. But which is not the place. The place is to make one thing stunning.”
