If you work in a typical office - a cubicle kind of situation - you probably haven't given a whole lot of thought to the furniture you use.

This week on Atlantic Voice, the CBC's Blair Sanderson spends time in a federal penitentiary.
And meets some of the people in the CORCAN program...building everything from desks to custom tool belts.
