The Macintable

Jake Wright

A while ago, I found a Mac G5 case somebody had thrown out. It had the right dimensions and storage capacity to make a fantastic end table. This was before I started designing furniture, so I bolted on some mass-produced table legs and congratulated myself on my handiness. I didn’t give it another thought until I started packing for my move to Brooklyn. I pulled the Ikea legs off and threw them away, promising to make it into a proper table once I got settled.

Months later, the proper table is made. I’m glad I had some walnut lying around, because the color goes really well with the silver case. Working with the angles in the legs was challenging but really fun, and I’m going to try incorporating angled supports in future designs. And finally, I’m adding the Macintable to the Stockpile line. While a G5 is hardly military equipment, this piece emphasizes the philosophy of intelligent re-use.

Plus I really like it, and this IS a dictatorship.
