VANCOUVER WOULD BE COOLER IF #193: Someone Made Desk Tops Shaped Like BC
We recently came across these cool wooden desk tops by San Francisco-based furniture maker and artist Jared Rusten and they gave us an idea. They’re shaped like the state of California, which is fine enough, but we thought they’d be much better if they were modeled on the shape of British Columbia instead. The outline of BC is similar to California’s, only ours is significantly fatter, which is to say it would make for a far more stable table. What’s more, two people could dine upon it comfortably with room for share plates and bottles of wine (Haida Gwaii would make a great hook for a dangling ice bucket). To our dearest woodworking readers, we hope one among you will give it a try. Please show us when you’re done!
