“It just catches my eye.” That’s what I say to my wife when I stop the television show and back track to take a closer look at something. In some cases, it’s a piece of furniture. I blame Mel Gibson. In the movie “The Patriot,” you seen more than a few pieces of nice looking furniture. This week is was a federal table in an episode of “Designated Survivor.”
In the photo above – it’s not easy getting a photo off the television screen – you see a Federal demilune table in the background. When I stopped the show, It took a couple of minutes to hash out at what I was looking. The shadow of the drawers on the right caused the arched opening to look almost downward-pointing at the center. But, it was not.
What did stand out to me was the twisted cords plugged into the wall. I’d thought a Hollywood Set Director would have seen that. And why two cords but only one plug end? Also, it’s easy to see the direction of the light – that’s not a white-painted leg on the front.
Show’em if you got’em! Send me a photo and a short explanation and I’ll post them for the world to see. I know most woodworkers scour the Internet for interesting posts such as this.
