New cardboard table


Just got back from a wonderfully long weekend (more on that later). I scrapped that other table I was working on. It was getting clunky, ugly and I just couldn’t gather up the motivation to fix how it was leaning oddly to the side. I very happy with this new idea. It’s so easy to put together, it looks pretty cool, and it uses all these empty boxes we’ve have just sitting around.

Seem incredibly fitting to post this right after Jack’s previous post.

Jeremy Fish has created Barry the Beaver, a ‘vibrating vinyl friend’ for all your needs — collecting and otherwise. …With a turn of the tree stump base, Barry starts buzzing and did we mention his strategically placed bendy tail? We used to say… no… toys for adults, not adult toys, but hey… Just remember if someone raises their eyebrows, it’s ART.

Origami Castle Addition

This is perfect for large open spaces (such as lofts) that can be configured in multiple ways. This flexible wall provides privacy but still lets the sunlight in.

Been building our own furniture for our apartment out of these boxes. It’s been great fun!
