Don Saklad sent in a link to Building with Books, a class @MIT.
"We will be designing and constructing furniture from disused books. If you are interested in finding new uses for discarded materials, or if you need a new piece of cool furniture, please join us. Projects may include chairs, shelves, tables, hammocks, walls, sculpture, and more. We will be working in a wood shop to find new ways to use books as structural or sculptural materials. The project is interdisciplinary and we are looking for creative uses for old reading material. Participants and organizers include engineers, architects, artists and more."
