How It's Made: Lego Bench Edition

First off, we'd like to thank everyone for their sweet comments on our George Nelson Platform bench made of Lego (you seriously made this past weekend uber fun!)

Before we close the Lego Project file, we'd like to take you behind the scenes of the lego bench process. Featured below is our Lego Bench documentary dedicated to Sesame Street's "How Crayons Are Made" episode; our inspiration and more importantly, my English teacher (I learned to speak English by watching Sesame Street). 

Enjoy!

  4. This video was phenomenal. Lee watched it too.

    My brother had one of those personalized books when he was little where you can be written into the story. It was, "Bryan visits Sesame Street." He told me that my parents loved him more and sent him there but kept the trip a secret from me. I had a huge complex that they didn't love me enough to let me visit my two favorites Bert and Ernie. Ah, childhood memories!

    That is so cool that you learned to speak English through Sesame Street. And your table still blows my mind. Thanks for the fun video, virtual bff!
