Electronics geeks would love to have a table like the one that New Yorkshire Workshop made. Watch as the artist painstakingly applies gold leaf to produce jumbo metal circuit board traces on a dyed-blue maple veneer, then gives it a nice shiny clear coat. Watch how he made the twisted “wire” copper legs here.
THE BEST Furniture
Most furniture is made primarily from wood or metal, but HomeMadeModern’s funky, angular chair is crafted from steel-reinforced concrete. He made the chair’s mold using strips of melamine, hot-glued, and sealed with silicone caulk. By filling the inner core with foam insulation, he was able to dramatically reduce its weight.

Studio Job designed this bold piece of furniture that doubles as a seat and a small side table, while adding a splash of Mexican culture to any space. Measures appx 17.7″ tall, and comes in black, green, terracotta, and ivory. Cast from polyethylene, so it weighs just 7.7 lb.
We all know by now that standing while working is healthier than sitting. But if you don’t have the cash for a whole new desk, check out rldh’s walnut and birch stand, which gives you a perfect standing work platform for your laptop and external keyboard on a budget.
An elegant and substantive way to organize your vinyl record collection. Symbol Audio’s modular storage system features solid wood drawers with soft-close drawer slides, vegetable-tanned leather handles, and brass hardware. Each drawer holds up to 90 records. They can be configured with equipment shelves or open-top storage.
Designed by Marcus Ødegaard Voraa, this prototype dining table provides a unique way to expand its tabletop. Rather than requiring leaves to be added or removed, simply slide the end of its base and unroll more or less wood for its top. There’s no indication that it’s gone into production, but you can always contact its creator.
While flat screen TVs are all the rage these days, sometimes a projector is still a better solution – especially if you want a huge image. Builder Laura Kampf shows off a neat design for a coffee table that has a cubby for concealing a projector neatly beneath its lid.
The perfect side table for any home theater is made using vintage Goldberg Brothers 35mm film reels. Its center pedestal is made from poly plastic, painted to match the reels in silver, gold, or bronze, and the 20″ glass top provides a smooth surface. Stands 24″ tall, and requires some basic assembly.
Builder Andrew Szeto created an awesome custom version of the iconic Eames lounge chair, replacing the traditional bent wood components with layers of laminated skateboard decks. We love the touch of color that Andrew’s design adds to this classic piece of furniture. More here.

Unlike other gaming chairs designed to sit at a desk, the Respawn-900 is meant for your game room. It offers a racing style bolstered back, a reclining leg support, wide armrests, and a drink holder. It reclines up to 135º, swivels 360º, and holds adults up to 275 lb. Our only complaint – we wish it included a lumbar support pillow.
Ollari’s shows us how to take slats of wood from a rickety old door and pallets to create a nifty new piece of outdoor furniture. If you put your mind to it, it’s amazing what you can achieve with a saw, some screws, and glue. We dig the burnt look of the finished piece.
Woodworker Lignum has made some pretty cool furniture over the years, and this build is definitely among his coolest. He created this table by laminating together blocks of wood then scorching it with a torch to give it the look that a fire burnt its insides out. We imagine it smells like a campfire too.
That expanding spray foam insulation can be really useful for filling gaps and cracks, but it’s also really nasty stuff. The King of Random decided to see if they could use a bunch of cans of Great Stuff to make usable (and really ugly) furniture. Somebody should try and build a house out of this goo.
One of the slicker looking desks we’ve seen for PC gamers, the Z1-S features dynamic “Z”-shaped metal legs, a carbon-fiber inspired surface, and has built in blue LED lighting, a headphone hook, drink holder, and a stand for controllers and games. PC cart and monitor arms sold separately.
