So great Ible and hooray for Tekken, but i think that this is in the wrong contest. i doesn't look very sledge-hammer proof for the indestructible contest, not involve sewing for the tophatter contest, but i voted for it in the furniture contest.
This is a cool project - I would love some more detail about how you constructed this.
