Say what you want about Nashville, Tn., but it’s a place that isn’t lacking in imagination. Designer and author Joe Johnston has taken an ordinary, everyday figure of speech – “table leg” – and turned it into something literal, bizarre, and very kitschy. Johnston’s table legs look like the real deal. The only thing they’re missing is the people they’re attached to.
We can see something like this in a man-cave or in-home recording studio. Have the neighbors over. Break out the six strings. Play some Johnny Cash and drink a little beer. Toss the football back and forth. Pieces vary in looks as Johnston makes these to order and sells them through the A Western Tradition website.
