    In an age obsessed with technology one would think new medical break-throughs would be thoroughly tested before

    I think the frame around the drawer and the legs would look better with sharper edges. Would show better ,cleaner,

    BOLD! That "tippiness" could be adjusted by user with a bolster pillow fitted with Velcro. Children might enjoy being
    photographed in that early TV seat and stretcher frame.

    The woven felt is the best ,pool table high end. It's a nice indulgence, but you have to put something in the box to repel
