Blocks of wood cut to look like highrises, can serve as floor lamps. These lamps can be made to look like any number of classic skyscraper forms: Chrysler, Empire State Building – this one is the CitiCorp from midtown. This is the building that Bill LeMessurier immortalized by having to retrofit it against quartering winds – and then writing about it in a famous New Yorker series of articles. An entire skyline of the most recognizable skyscrapers would make a fine wall of light. These blocks of wood, so lightened by numerically controlled cutters, could also be really handy for cribbing buildings. I also think that this treatment would make for a stunning post in a home. We can write versions of this into the machine language used to cut your timber frame.
