Carbon Fiber Bathtub

If money is no object, why bother with a normal bathtub, when you could have Splinter Works' "Carbon Fiber Vessel Bathtub"? Measuring in at 2.7-meters long, it can also be completely customized to your space with wall mounts, and is available in various colors, including blue, red, bronze, pure silver, yellow, and even pink. A foam core was added for extra insulation, which means the water will stay hotter than in a traditional tub. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny internet trolls gallery.

Abyss Table

Duffy London's "Abyss Table" is basically a 3D representation of a geological cross section, and recreates a bottomless chasm right in your living room. The process first begins by hand-layering several sheets of both wood and glass atop each other, until the desired look is achieved. While it may be a laborious as well as intricate process, the end result is most certainly a conversation starter worthy of any living room.

Imgur user Jamey Dogg decided to build a real floating bed, but without using any specialized tools or materials. "The subframe is 2x4's sitting on top of 2x8's. The 2x4's are cantilevered 15 inches over the 2x8's on the front and 2 sides. Cost of 2x4' and 2x8 was $140," said the builder(s). As you can see in the "after" image above, it was definitely worth the effort. Continue reading to see the build process from start to finish.

Glow Table

Mike Warren, a woodworking guru, has perfected the art of making glow tables by filling their naturally formed voids in with photoluminescent powder mixed with clear casting resin. The powder charges up in sunlight before putting on a cool blue glow when night falls. The key is in the cypress wood, as he chooses pieces that have been naturally damaged with a fungal growth inside causing sections to rot, which are then removed to form pockets for the glow powder.

These Cracked Log Lamps look normal at first, but at the flip of a switch, they illuminate everything around you with LED lights. Created by Duncan Meerding, these creative pieces are made from real pieces of wood, and can also be used as a stool or table, in addition to a light source. One caveat: one of these lamps will run you about $780, due to each piece being handcrafted to order. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny school pictures gallery.

The futuristic Altwork Station is specifically engineered to allow users to use their computer while standing, reclined, or even laying on their backs. How? It uses high-powered magnets to hold the crucial components - mousepad, keyboard and mouse - in "Focus" mode, so that they're not tumbling onto the floor. Customers can also choose from several color schemes as well as the desk material. Expect to shell out $5,900 for one when it hits stores.

Kotatsu Bed Japanese

Photo credit: Bored Panda

A kotatsu is basically a low, wooden table frame covered by a futon, or heavy blanket, upon which a table top sits. Underneath is a heat source, often built into the table itself. They are used almost exclusively in Japan, although similar devices are used elsewhere. The modern style of kotatsu consists of a table with an electric heater attached to the underside of the table. This evolved from a clay pot with hot coals placed under a table. The kotatsu usually is set on a thin futon, like a throw rug. A second, thicker futon is placed over the kotatsu table, above which the tabletop is placed. The electric heater attached to the underside of the table heats the space under the comforter.

Not just any coffee table, this Millennium Falcon creation by Richard Riley at Tom Spina Designs is most certainly a Star Wars fanatic's dream come true. Unfortunately, a very wealthy fan contacted Tom Spina Designs and had one of these custom made, so only one exists.
