I Dare You by ~Toilet-Gnome Many people think you can't do innovative things with simple materials like wood or glass, but then you meet someone who can take those materials and truly make them into something spectacular. ( Suggested by Myana and Featured by ohnojaylo )

Nice. I like the simplicity of it. It reminds me of a chair a friend of mine made. His didn't have the same flow though.

This design is amazing!
Though i would use it for all my electronic (amp, cd, dvd, record player). With a hole in the back for all the cables it would be beyond perfect =)

i thought this was an end table, i think it would make a fairly good one... i would not sit on it though, and i dont even weigh that much

lol the thought of it looking like an end table never even crossed my mind untill everyone started pointing that out. It probably would make a better table than a chair. Sorry it took so long to get back to you!

Looks cool, but two words. SEAT CUSHIONS. I refuse to sit on a hard surface like that unless I have some form of padding for my backside to sit on. Otherwise, its an excellent piece.
