i’m kind of obsessing with tables these days.

i need to get one for my flat soon, to use as a desk-slash-dining table. so it should seat 4 people at a squeeze (i mean how often do i have people over, really? they usually just stand around and get drunk anyway).  so i’m going to have one made by a super crafty friend – steel trestle legs and a wooden top.
