Wooden Lampshade

Making of a Shade from Soren Berger on Vimeo.

That’s interesting.  When I think of wood, I don’t think of lamp shade.  I think of table, or chair, or lamp base.  I don’t think of translucent covering for a light emitting apparatus.  Clearly I don’t get out much.  At first I was alittle concerned, that seems like an awful waste of wood, but then I realized that it’s not really that big a piece, and all those shavings probably made really nice kindling for some wood burning stove.  It looks nice, but it’s not so nice that I would want something like that in my home.  I’m sharing because it’s the nice thing to do.

Mind the Mine

I like me the military. That’s a known fact. I also like me some one of a kind furniture pieces. And these repurposed naval mines as furniture is really up my alley.

You can get genuine Soviet Naval mines circa 1940+ turned into super cool living room furniture.

There are choices from a fireplace or charcoal grill, to a toilet, bedroom set, living room set, porch swing, and many more.

I like the chandelire at the top of the post the best, but the fireplace is nice looking, as is the other photos I choose.  I’m not so sure how a full bathroom would work.  There is a toilet, and a bathtub, but no sink, and no shower.  I don’t know if the shower would be comfortable, but if there’s enough space to sit down, there should be enough space to stand and shower.  I mean, if they can make a bed, they should be able to make a shower too.

This desk is pretty nice looking too, but in my opinion, alittle to narrow for my tastes.  And I don’t like the light color of the granite top, but it’s still cool.

Giant Light Switch

At first I thought this was silly and dumb, but the video makes up for it.  It’s very watchable, and I like how they combined all their photos together into a video to show how it was made.  Not quite stop motion, not quite long list of stuff, just right.

Now, I probably wouldn’t have it in my home, but a variation on the design, maybe an oversized something else would work I think.
