Another one of those huge slab tables. I like it but the metal sutures and the odd mismatched plugs... well, I'll just say it's not nearly as elegant as George Nakashima would have done. Kind of like a school shop project, Jimmy do this hole, bobby do that hole, etc.

I've driven past a... Well, it's a parking lot. But there's a sign, and maybe a shack, and dozens of big slabs. The ones I've seen are 4ft wide and they're stored on end, they look... 16 ft long? More maybe. Gigantic.

I'd love to produce something like this, but I'd be working in the yard under a tarp for. Who knows. Still, ruggedly beautiful.

Good idea for a quick change from couch to bed, BUT invariably the couch is up against a wall, so folded down like that you have to climb over it to pee in the middle of the night.

Build one of these, then if you're busted you can say you're off your rocker.

It doesn't have to be fancy to be functional and comfortable.

We have discussed titles before, so I won't go into detail, but I think it's a little silly that he put his dentistry training credentials on his woodworking bench.

I also think the strategically placed wood shavings on the floor are silly.

But that bench is freaking gorgeous and reinforces an idea I had to incorporate into my bench a floor length wooden vice that was my grandfather's brother's.

I suspect the dentist commissioned it.

You can be off your rocker and glad of it.

This is a spy shot of Grifftopia which Griff hewed out of the wilderness, with the support of his lovely wife, and two miniature slaves.
