Earlier I posted a video of a really cool adjustable table and brought me to the idea of starting a thread to share this kind of unique work.
Just for fun, or maybe to get some inspiration. So if you found some cool stuff on the net, or made something yourself, post it here. :D

I'll tee off with this misbehaving coffee table and a sexy dresser by Straight Line Designs
Be sure to check this site out, some amazing stuff!

Inception Chair

My favourite piece thinking-oustide-the-box design is a chair I saw in 500 Chairs by Lark Books. The piece, I believe, is called Thalia's Chair and was made by draping a sheet of canvas over a rocking chair then pouring epoxy resin over the canvas. Once the epoxy cured, the chair was removed.

Another one I love is Wendell Castle's Ghost Clock. It's carved from mahogany. Yes, the whole thing. The sheet was carved then repeatedly bleached. The raised grain was left to add a cloth-like texture.

If you check out 500 Cabinets you'll see a lot of this type of work

I haven't started "reading" 500 Tables or 500 Chairs yet, but I imagine there's more of the same there.

I should go back through my twitter timeline and find links to interesting pieces I've tweeted.
