    I take offense to the comparison to Livio De Marchi in the first article.

    I mean, these are cute and all, I like them, but they're nothing compared to De Marchi.

    Good use of stain, though.

    Those are very sweet. I love stuff like that. Being wood is great, but the handmade one-of-a-kind thing would make it too pricey for me to appreciate beyond the pics.

    They're safe from cosmic rust, and scraplets. Better look out for termites, though.

    Do they try to kill eachother with wood chippers and pencil sharpeners when they get the hate plague?
