Hey everyone. I was on one of the design sites that I frequently visit and saw this cool article. Its all about modern ways to join wood (furniture applications). Anyways I have the link below. It is a safe link. I am on lumberjocks all the time, and am not a spammer, etc. So click it if you want…..or dont – but this is pretty cool. The site as a whole is also very cool, especially if you are into the designing and building of modern/unique furniture. (also if you do click the link and go to the site, please comment on the blog, so others know its safe, so I dont get yelled at for posting links, and they know its real…and real cool :) )

also…i’m not trying to promote this site (even though it seems like it) – I just really thought you guys would get a kick out of this article.

Thats some cool work. Interesting materials to joint joints.

I prefer a good “traditional” joint to a plastic connection. These so called “designers” are not taking into consideration how plastic deteriorates over time. Of course in today’s throw away society, it probably doesn’t matter anyway.

not saying they are right or wrong….just very interesting and unique. The very last shelving unit with the wood through the fiberglass….that is awesome!!

I have to admit, I almost always prefer older looking furniture and traditional joints. Most of that page was just a bit scary, but you are right, that last bit with the wood though the plastic shelving was pretty cool. I don’t even know why I liked it, but I did.

I really like the elastic / wood combo chair, too. It made me wonder about how one could be made with molded plywood for the elastic bits. I’m sure you’d need a CNC router for the flower-joinery intersections.

Thanks for sharing the link! Interesting stuff to look at.

Somehow I just don’t see this catching on. Kind of like freeform sculpture – might interest some but just doesn’t do a thing for the rest of us. I admit that it is interesting to look at and think about but not something I’d be interested in trying. Thanks for the link, though.
