Next Up: A Whole Treehouse

Furniture is expensive. These days, it's hard to justify buying a new couch or table. But what if you could grow your own furniture?

That's what Peter Cook and Becky Northey have done. They can make "living furniture," which is trees in the shape of a, say, chair. Not a tree that gets cut down to become a chair. This tree is already a chair. How cool is that?

They also do other woodwork/artwork, but the living furniture stuff is definitely my favorite. What a cool touch for a backyard. Take that, wicker!
