Can someone build me a table?

I guess our Postal Service is putting the Eames and their new-fangled furniture designs on stamps. Well, as an inventor myself, who took a fancy to wood and carpentry, I appreciate their creativity.

I wish I had the Eames around back in the day when my wife wanted me to build a new table. I spent hours crafting, cutting and sanding that thing and ended up looking less than square. I actually got it to stand on three legs, but it wasn't much good for holding the chicken dinner.

Today, you would call it "art." Back then, we called it "firewood."

Despite their names, Charles and Ray Eames were married for 37 years before Charles' death in 1978.
