In You Can't Buy It, Make It with Legos: Nelson Bench

In You Can't Buy It, Make It with Legos: Nelson Bench

You may have already seen this floating around the blogosphere, but it seemed worthy of a revisit. When Chris' obsession over the George Nelson Platform Bench grew (but his ability to buy one didn't), he decided to build himself. But when he realized he had no real carpentry skill, he turned to the one building tool he was well-versed in — Legos.

Using over 1,400 Legos, this "bench" may sufficiently function as neither bench nor coffee table, but it's one heck of a decorative piece. Luckily, that's the main purpose it will serve since, according to Chris of My Humble Ablog, it goes "in the boring room that nobody sits in anyway."
