There’s a saying that the right desk will make any office, and that’s probably true of this amazing desk. It’s got a few tricks up its sleeve, so that it remains multi-functional while still looking g in your office or at home.
We talk about lots of cool LEGO construction projects around here. One of the more interesting, and large LEGO projects was the gigantic 105 foot tall LEGO tower we covered about a year ago. That tower set a world record for the tallest LEGO construct ever built.
Everyone needs a place to stow the stuff that fills their pockets. As for myself, I tend to leave my keys in my pockets at all times, because I’ve forgotten them before, my smartphone is near me most of the day, and I usually keep my wallet on a cupboard in my bedroom.
One thing that’s great about IKEA furniture is that it’s so cheap that you can feel comfortable hacking it into other forms without fear of damaging your grandma’s prized antique Chippendale. Take, for example, this epic IKEA hack, which transformed a couple of ordinary stools into a functional kid’s bicycle.
Now this is a marriage proposal that will resonate with Harry Potter fans. Rachel was ready to propose to her girlfriend Jaquie, so she enlisted the help of CustomMade, which some people have described as a cross between Etsy and Match.com.
For a long time, most sunglasses have made of the same basic materials – plastic or metal. Recently, I’ve seen wooden sunglasses and even shades made from recycled skateboards pop up. These sunglasses fuse wood with stone to make them look quite rugged.
Etsy seller and fan of our sister site The Awesomer, Gerald Von Bargen recently pointed us to one of his wares. It’s a wooden cutting board engraved with the periodic table of the elements!

Christmas may be more than 9 months away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start preparing early, right? Actually, who says nutcrackers are only good for the holidays anyhow – especially when they look like this?
Have you ever sat on a chair that seemingly looked sturdy, but eventually gave way under your butt? I have, and let me tell you, while it sounds funny, it’s extremely painful (and embarrassing!) Unfortunately, we only have the chair to blame… or don’t we?
What genius gave this robot a chainsaw? This industrial robot has been programmed to carve logs into stools. With a chainsaw. Is this really a good idea? Uh, probably not. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre will now become the Robot Chainsaw Massacre.
When it comes to speakers, retro designs can look pretty great. Check out the Symbol Audio Tabletop HiFi, a tabletop audio system that wouldn’t look out of place in a pad from the 1960s. I’m sure that Don Draper would approve.
There have been plenty of different passive amplifiers for smartphones, but I have to say that this one definitely stands out from the crowd. The Bomie’s Boom System is quite large, and could be something interesting to have in your living room if you don’t believe in powered speakers.
Alright kid, let’s blow this thing and go home… Check out this awesome X-Wing Fighter coffee table made from wood and glass. It looks stunning and it took Sean Regan and Aubrey Cohen 6 months to make it, carving it from a few hunks of wood.
