Happy Halloween! Today I bring you a not-so-spooky coffee table and carpet design based on the ol’ Ouija Board. These are for geeks who enjoy occult-themed fare like Supernatural and Buffy, and can also afford to shop at fancy furniture joints (none of that IKEA stuff).
The wooden coffee table features a glass fixture and wheels, of course. The carpet would ideally be as big as possible to help sell the illusion of an oversize game board. The one thing about the Ouija Board is that it’s a very nice design, and looks at home on the floor. You couldn’t say for that Monopoly or Sorry.
Seeing as Adventure Time’s Jake The Dog is a shapeshifter, I feel he would make an excellent bed frame. In actuality you could turn him into all kinds of furniture: a couch, dresser, dinner table, and so on. I could literally do a whole series of Jake The Dog furniture but I think you get the idea. (Edit: here he is in table form:)
Some might get creeped-out by Jake’s stare. Maybe include swappable eyes a la Mr. Potato Head?
I think kids would dig this bed. Probably not as much as this bed, which I am emailed about almost daily.

A couple of posts ago I threw out the idea of a Zelda Candle Holder (based on the dungeon torches from Ocarina of Time), and Rachel Holden decided to make it! And she did a bang-up job as you can see above.
It’s just a fake candle for now – she didn’t want to burn her house down, which is completely understandable. She explains how it was made (and what those GoT sigils are in the background) in this Reddit post.
So why can’t I just make these things myself? I’m an ideas man. I leave the implementation to others!
I know this is a goofy admission, but I always dug the futuristic-looking wheels they put on the Mars Rover. I think they’d be awesome for an office chair like the one you see above. Heck, those wheels would look cool on just about anything…skateboards, lawnmowers, you name it.
The design above has the standard 5 legs with swivel wheels. My first instinct was to make a six-wheel configuration similar to the Mars Rover, but that would sacrifice maneuverability.
This reminds me of a heavy duty chair design I posted a while back. That post continue to draw traffic from people seeking a strong and durable chair, and I have fielded numerous inquiries about making it available. I wish I could make it available, because I still want one. However the design above has the potential to be as durable, if not more so.
This puts a new spin on desk drawers or shelves: a small separate reservoir in the front of the drawer that would hold Lego. This adds a colorful decorative touch to your workspace, and provides that satisfying sound of Lego clattering as you open and close the drawer.
Ideal for desks, shelves, and storage organizers. You could use plastic tubs or any drawer that has a window opening in the front. A lid for the reservoir might be helpful too.
Lego would be the best use of these reservoirs, however you could put whatever you want in there: thumb tacs, color markers, gumballs, etc.

Now you can shower just like a champion! Except on a more daily basis. And with regular water, not Gatorade. (EDIT: You also could embed an LED in there to make the water change colors. Thanks to Ryan M. for the idea!).
On a lighter note this blog is now 3 years old! Thanks for stopping by and putting up with my weird ideas, much like the one you see above.
The first chair mat I designed was very well-received – one was actually made! While I’m still trying to sort out how more can be made available, I thought I’d offer up another design: StarCraft 2. This one is just the Terran highlight circle and health meter for a ground unit, but you could make it a base building (with a production meter) or a flying unit. The highlight circles for Protoss and Zerg are even fancier, but what can I say? I’m a Terran fan.
Speaking of which, you should check out this Terran hockey jersey I have on my other blog.
