Robo-Lumberjack Furniture Maker (6pics)

These wooden stools (see pics below) may be a bit 'simple' when it comes to furniture design, but it's the process in which they are made is what makes them truly spectacular... 
Each stool is fabricated using an autonomous robotic arm with a fixed chainsaw. 
The 7xStool is a furniture set carved by a robot wielding a chainsaw. An invention of Tom Pawlofsky and Tibor Weissmahr in conjunction with Echtwald and Kkaarrlls, the robot is basically a performance artist running a CAD script. In about 35 minutes, it turns a plain log into a pair of solid wood stools (along with what you could label wither leftover scrap or a pretty cool-looking coffee table if you got a chunk of glass).

It would be easy to save space by fitting the custom made wooden cabinets in the room.
