Workbench table designs,pirate treasure chest cake design,plans to build a drafting table - For Begninners
One of our first assignments as industrial design students should have been to design and build our own carrying cases.
People looking for geeky furniture who have recently inherited a few million dollars should really take a look at the following coffee table which doubles as a fully functional NES controller. The coffee table in question was created by Bohemian Workbench, a custom design studio based in Venice Beach, California. As seen in the description, the NES controller coffee table is made from various types of exotic wood.
The only thing not mentioned in the above description is the price of the table, but you’ll have to keep reading, if you want to find that out.
If you liked this post, please check the X-Wing coffee table and the floppy disk coffee table. If you are a Geek who likes New Gadgets, cool Technology or fun Designs and want to write about it, let us know! This workbench functions as a meeting and lab table, with integral wire access flipper doors and high compression lockable casters for mobility. This particular item is so geeky that, provided it falls in the right hands, I don’t know if it will be used more as a coffee table or as a NES controller. As the casual geek most probably does not have this kind of money lying around, the NES controller coffee table will end-up in the home of some multi-millionaire who does not even appreciate the effort the designers and manufactuers have put into this.
The table is currently on sale on Etsy, where Bohemian Workbench is looking for the right owner. Modern-day accomplished woodworkers gamely began replicating Roubo's design, as in the drawing below.[image source][image source]YouTube tutorials went up on the subject, including this staggering 34-part series.
