    Geographic Design

    This should interest all the other map people (if you are similar to me).

    Here is a table shaped like Fla. It is called the Florida Table and is on display at the Coral Castle in Homestead, Fl.

    We went last summer. Well worth the stop if you are ever in the area.

    What do mean? If you look closer I bet you can find your house... it is very detailed.

    Got any other photos of the place? I've never heard of it before.

    You're right, I see it.....but I had to squint my eyes to find it.

    Too bad Chile doesn't have a good shape to make a table... too narrow and too long... and it'd be a PITA to make all those little islands in Patagonia, the Andes on one side and the coastal range on the other side... definately not a good table.

    Interesting site though.

    I just have to look at my outstretched hand, and I see the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.

    I have a dining room table that is in the shape of South Dakota - really!
