Genius hack...!


Oh... have I mention that my husband (Mike Sankey) is a luthier? He makes stringed istruments (electric, arch top and all sorts of other guitars). Check out this awesome genius 'IKEA hacked' amplifier he made out of Ikea's Benjamin stool! I think this was a brilliant idea! One of these days I would make Mike a website. He's got so many beauties of  guitars. The electric ones in the pics are also his. Just wanted to brag a little....:)

I'm afraid my husband's amp is too big for one stool... but may be in a bench?
;oD
Luthier... such a great and interesting job!
