Today's Westlaw's "Headnote of the Day" e-mail contained the case headnote "Sitting on a couch is not exercise."

    This is my version of a quilting cutting table island to look nicer for me. I was moving into a huge new quilting studio space and I knew I had lots of space to play with. So what I did was I wanted a table that was very big and tall because of my back pain I get from bending at a angle. So I wanted it tall. I first measured how tall my last island was and it was about 36-37 inches tall so I wanted about that. I then measured how long my huge white cutting mat was length and width. So I knew I wanted this table top to be way bigger then that so I had space for more and I can really use the…

    Materials: ÄPPLARÖ bench I have been looking for a nice potting bench at an affordable price for months (in Italy nobody sells this sort of garden furniture). When I finally decided to build my own, I stepped into the ÄPPLARÖ series of garden furniture and thought at first I could accommodate the ÄPPLARÖ service tray to fit…but it had wheels which I didn’t want and it was too short (80 cm) so I would have had to place 2 of them side by side (which couldn’t be done with wheels getting in the way). Instead I bought 2 low benches which are 44 cm high and 114 cm long.

However, there was no light overhead of the table yet, so we hacked up a lamp out of two FOTO lights we had lying around. The modification was easy enough. Each lamp was modified with a transparent cable instead of a black one, and supported on its own from an eyebolt attached to the ceiling. To connect the two lamps together, we decided to make a wooden dowel which looks like a flying batten used in old…

Sept. 11, 2013) (a copy of the opinion can be found here).In the opinion, the panel of Judges O'Malley, Schall, and Wallach confirmed that the obviousness of a design patent is to be determined through the eyes of an "ordinary designer," not an "ordinary observer."
