When we started on our obsessive tree riff, hauling home huge logs to make into “furniture“, Pamela Hovland mentioned that Robert Frost spoke standing at lectern made of a giant tree. We’ve GOT TO SEE THAT, we wrote, and Pamela kindly went to the library to scan the image.
And of course, that sent us looking for more examples of tree trunk lecterns and stands. To our surprise, we found this tree trunk bench by Droog.
Er, that is: for $23,000 Droog supplies 3 cast-bronze chair backs with a drill bit so you can to afix them to a tree trunk that you supply.
Do we need to spend $23,000 to achieve this effect?
We’ll take the idea, and a haiku instead:
A gate made all of twigs
with woven grass
for a lock…this snail.
Thanks a million, Pamela!
