Amazing Desk Was Made Using Only Hand Tools

My Swedish Moline family members included two furniture makers, Johan Emil and Gunnar, father and son. I know no history of their education, nor do I have any furniture that they might have made, but from census records for the Seattle, Washington area I know that “Emil” was listed as a furniture refinisher, and his son owned Moline Furniture Company.  The photos above are Emil Moline on the top and his son Gunnar below him.

Seeing this Berlin Secretary Cabinet video today made me appreciate their skills even more.  In no way did they probably create anything so wonderful as this secretary cabinet, but who knows, there might be a piece of original Moline furniture work floating around out there.

Extreme Comfort Is The Goal


What’s the most used piece of furniture in your office? If you said a chair, you are absolutely right! You most definitely have to have a comfy place to sit to work and having the right chair is imperative in my opinion.

For me, it is especially so because I have a physical condition (fibromyalgia) that dictates my every move each day. I need something to cushion my underside and support my back. It all sounds very easy to just go buy a new office chair, but, for me, shopping in a store is almost torture and certainly less convenient. I’d rather shop online.

I suppose you might make the argument that you can’t sit in a chair online, but for me I know exactly what kind of configuration I need and just by looking at an image of a chair, and I can tell if it would work for me. I mean, come on, it’s not rocket science to choose an office desk chair, right?

A site I’ve been looking at for office desk chairs is Chair Hero, also found online at chairhero.com, and from my views of the variety of chairs they have, I’ve picked a few that I think would work for me.

What do you like in an office chair? Lumbar support, a chair with arm rests, or adjustable height controls? Truthfully, you need at least two of those choices, but I think I need a fabric cover for both the back and seat areas. And, lots of cushioning in a wide seat bottom! I’ve always had an armless computer chair and it works quite well for me, so that would be one thing I could give up if I had to. So many choices… but I Wanna see more before I finalize and order. That’s the hard part, choosing. Sigh.
