I guess computers really are in everything these days. They’re even invading our furniture now, with these circuit board bench and circuit board table providing a surprisingly cool technodecor to any friendly neighborhood geek near you. First, let’s take a look at the bench, shall we?
This little bench was put together by Doug Chase of Ogden, UT. It is put together using stainless steel, steel (which is apparently not so stainless as to deserve its own mentioning), a polyester resin and (of course) polished circuit boards. I’m curious as to wheere exactly this is located. It looks to be in a public place, but that’s only speculation on my part. Anyway, onto our circuit board table.
I think the lighting inside really makes the table here. I mean it just looks badass. It was constructed using two tables. One of them is on the inside in order to hold up the computer boards, and one on the outside which gives us the surface of the piece. If you’re wondering where exactly those circuit boards came from, well then get out of my head and stop reading my mind! It is mainly made up (according to the creator) of boards and drives from an old Intergraph 6000 series. I have no idea what that is, but they were apprently built in the 80s and early 90s. As with most “computers” from that age, the boards were flipping huge. For some extra fluff, there’s also some bits from a 2800 baud (ahahaha) modem and a few other extras.
The lighting is provided care of LED lights along the perimeter and are light sensitive so when you turn the lights off, this baby automatically turns on, providing you with circuit board goodness all through the night. This beats the crap out of throwing them in a landfill, and they’d fit well with your recycled motherboard coasters and junk metal shoes.
