Grow your own furniture

Grown StoolsHaving problems finding furniture that suits your taste? No, problem! Just grow them in your own backyard. But then again, you will needs lots of patience as it takes 5 years to grow one.

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.
