Treehugger points us toward a great new web service called Ponoko that’s allowing people lacking a complete workshop the ability to design and manufacture a customized piece of furniture. The New Zealand company is still in Beta, but is set to go live later this year. Once live, users will be able to digitally submit furniture designs and select materials on a central website – those designs will then be sent to a local Ponoko manufacturer to be constructed, eventually being shipped back to the users door step. The system also allows users to save their designs and sell them to other Ponoko users. Treehugger comments:
