Tony Cenicola/The New York Times

The New York Times reviews interesting tables, mostly made from recycled wood. The
mxyplyzyk tables shown are made from the stumps of "discarded" Chinese fir trees. We have never heard of discarded trees before, and assume it is benign rather than code for "clear-cut". Former monk Tucker Robbins uses recycled rainforest wood and indigenous trades to make furniture like the Spiral Table. And of course, it would have to show Brent Comber's alder cube, beloved of TreeHugger. ::New York Times
