In 1998, Lee Kuen Lin started a furniture stores called "Woody Substance" with his friend Lee Wei Mu. They sold some woody tables and chairs made by themselves.
The tables and chairs Kuen Lin made were really unusual, like art works. At that period (since 1997), he made lots of woody furniture, including tables, chairs, bookcases and shelves at his own hous. Besides, he also used wood or non-wood to do his Sculptures.
