or seat, stepstool, endtable, coffee table, poster bed, nightstand, etc. Just as versatile as it's electronic component integrated circuit counterpart, use cardboard or "card" in the UK, to make this dandy piece of furniture. Besides being appropriate for electronic musicians, this is the geeky thing to have as a conversation piece in the living room, den or hackerspace. Try your hand first at the Giant Fn Computer Key

practice in building with cardboard. This takes it a another step with engineered cardboard components to give it strength.
I think I might need a giant 20 megawatt soldering iron to solder this in place.
The idea was from seeing this scaled up 555 timer chip footstool.
It was made from lasercut plywood panels and glue laminated together. 1. I do not have a lasercutter. 2. Not the most efficient use of materials, especially cabinet grade plywood to form a chunky solid mass. So what do we do? 1. Make it bigger. 2. Build it out of cardboard which is plentiful waiting to be recycled. 3. Demonstrate cardboard can be engineered in structures for great strength.
Maybe a giant transistor or LED cardboard barstool is my next project.
