Recycled Chopstick Canoe
A Japanese man was bothered by the fact that so much wood was being put to waste so that people could use disposable chopsticks. He, of course, did the logical thing; build a canoe out of them. To accomplish this feat, Shuhei Ogawara has spent the last two years collecting said chopsticks from the local cafeteria. His boat is constructed of 7,382 chopsticks glued together and then sealed with a resin coating. It has yet to be tested, but he is pretty confident it will float for the launch ceremony.
