Folly woodwork

In the story of Folly Rae Newborn is a woodworker who creates amazing furniture and tables out of otherwise useless stumps of wood. While browsing through an outdoor art festival this past weekend, I came upon a couple of pieces that reminded me of this.





The top one is a coffee table made of glass put on a stump, and the second picture, is a decorative fountain/table, again, made of a stump and glass. I couldn't help but think of Rae when I saw these.

Nice follow up. I love when a book gives you a new appreciation for some aspect of life you never properly considered before.

Thanks Seana.

That's actually part of the purpose of this blog, not only to write about the books, but to also write about the various ideas the books bring up, and to learn more about them. I seem to get pretty lazy about it though.

It's hard to keep up, isn't it?

Sure is, too bad I've never been a subscriber to the sleep is over-rated theory. I could get plenty done if I were.
