Grow your own furniture

grow a stool

Not really my style but all together interesting.

You can grow a stool or a table frame like these. Fruit growers have been training trees to shape since we don’t know when, and furniture has been made of wood for thousands of years, so why not train trees to make furniture? I’ve proved that it can be done. All you need are three saplings, a plywood jig, instructions and a little patience. It takes about five years.
