Mr. Barkington

Anyone who has found themselves in an industrial arts class has, most likely, been exposed to the tough love sort of teaching methodology espoused by Mr. Barkington:

… Well, I didn’t have a kindly grandfather teaching me: Instead I had a hard-ass I’ll call Mr. Barkington, who ran the Wood Shop class in my high school. And I thought he was a complete asshole.

Mr. Barkington and his methods are the subject of The Accidental Designer, Part 1 – Shop to Hell. As has been the case with all of the True Industrial Design Stories on Core77, it is a great read.
