This DIY project called the '555 Footstool' posted on the website of Evil Mad Scientist is the perfect geeky furniture for the computer lover in your life. The stool itself is modeled off of a 555 Timer Chip and the geeky DIYer at Evil Mad Scientist created an exact replica of a small 555 circuit they had at hand. The circuit itself is used in many of your beloved electronics.

The project involves quite a bit of intense DIY-ing, using a variety of materials and required steps and at least minimal handyman skills. The result seems to be well worth the effort as the end product makes for a quite sturdy relatively indestructible geeky piece of furniture because of the plywood and lamination process.
