The Contraption

The Contraption is what my wife calls this. I was thinking "Smoking Stand" or "Chairside Companion", but she may be right. It has a sort of Berlin 1957 office look to it. Mark and I have talked about a smoking stand for 4 or 5 years, but we never came up with the perfect design. I thought I had it. I sketched a cool Craftsman-looking piece of furniture and started to build it ... then I quickly saw that what I drew would not work in a 3 dimensional world. On the fly I made changes and then more changes until The Contraption appeared. Not something I will attempt to sell. Instead I believe I'll keep it for myself and continue thinking about the Perfect Smoking Stand. -T
