This site looks pretty interesting, especially with the recent talk of
chairs.

 

 

  This site offers an alternative for disposing of undesirable

   books: build them into furniture. The site documents the

   exhibition of lamps, umbrella stands, picture frames, and related

   objects, along with "photographs of the process, [and] publicity

   posters." The project was the result of a classroom and library

   collaboration at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

I got this from the Librarians' Index to the Internet, http://lii.org
<http://lii.org/search?basic_search=1> , which I subscribe to. It
comes once a week. There's always something interesting listed.
