Honey, Please Mow the Table

Walnut Table with Planter Box

Life is about sharing. We share stories. We share tools (well, my religion forbids that actually). Sometimes if we are *really* good friends, short on cash, or just drunk, we’ll even share bodily fluids.

Lately, I’ve been feeling like I haven’t shared enough with you guys and I want to change that immediately. Those shuddering at the moment relax… I only have so much bodily fluids to go around and what I want to share is much more mentally stimulating (and less STD laden).

For many years now I’ve been reading various architectural, interior design, and general design blogs. These blogs inevitably throw something at me that makes me pause for a second and say “wow, that’s pretty darn creative”. These posts are what I want to share with you.

Given that we tend to become more concrete thinkers as time goes on, I think it’s always a good thing to exercise the mind and keep it as flexible as possible. So please let me help keep your creative mind bendy and limber. I’ll sort of be your personal trainer… The creepy one that slaps you on your ass for pushing out one more rep (ladies only… sorry guys).

Now, I should hasten to add that other than watching the show “Design Star”, I have no other qualifications to speak to what good design is, which is to say that I’m an expert like everyone else.

So without further ado, here we go with the first link. It’s a gorgeous walnut slab table that the designer, Emily Wettstein, had fun with as she incorporated a planter box into it. Personally I would have grown celery in there… what could be more convenient when eating hot wings? Better yet, I think I’d just make the planter a trough loaded with a mountain of hot wings. Because I’m refined like that.

    Hot wings are good. Hot wings or beer trough–the new keg? Just dip right in.

      Alex, I think we are on to something. I’m thinking we get rid of the table and just make it one huge beer and wing trough. I can’t wait to get a thank you note from the original designer of this table for evolving the design to new levels. I’ll just answer her now… you’re welcome!

    What an interesting creation.

      I’m with you Dan. The designer seems to be expressive in a variety of mediums. Her web-page is definitely surf-worthy (linked to in the post).
