You can build a Batarang.

I've played with boomerangs before, plastic and wood. I've had success in catching my own throws many times. I'm probably a step or two beyond beginner.

I'm telling you right now, that's a bad idea waiting to happen.

Of course the regular way of catching a boomerang is to "clap" it between your palms, trapping it. OF COURSE, you don't always catch it properly. I can tell the "Batarang" in the picture's never been thrown, or at least it's never been closely missed because the wing-tip opposite the thrower's hand and the trailing edge point just behind the back of the thrower's hand are not covered in gore.

Done well, the end of the flight is close to where it started (duh) and it's slowly (relatively speaking) helicoperting to the ground, in a flattish orientation.

If it works right it doesn't come back, it hits what you were hunting.

If you perform correctly, so will the boomerang.

Had to ponder a bit, but I think I do like it.

I don't.

I mean, it's well built and uses nice materials and everything, but I don't like the form. A person sitting at it can't reach any of the storage. Also, it's a bit clunky looking. I like thin, light looking furniture similar to the Shaker aesthetic. Although it's hard to make a desk with storage look light.

Maybe it's for a really important CEO with two secretaries to hand him/her things.

I did have to ponder a while.

You could use this one for a desk and have a minion bring you file folders as needed.

Good thing this is only a coffee table, having the kids table close to the adults table could traumatize the wee ones when drunk uncle starts talking about the red light districts during the war.

Based on standard brick height, those side doors are 4 feet tall and the center door is 8.75 feet tall.
