Canoe made from disposable chopsticks

I just found this on another blog named Pink Tentacle. What a cool idea.

A former city employee in the Fukushima prefecture town of Koriyama has built a 4-meter 13-ft long canoe from thousands of used disposable chopsticks recovered from the city hall cafeteria. Bothered that perfectly good wood was going to waste after a single use, Shuhei Ogawara — whose job at city hall involved working with the local forestry industry — spent the last two years of his career collecting used chopsticks from the cafeteria.
