Chopstick Canoe

Shuhei Ogawara, a former city 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. 7382 chopsticks to be exact. Weighing in at 66lbs., Ogawara's creation is only slightly heavier than other wooden canoes built from birch, etc.

  1. Kristine- Me too, but I'm not sure I'd want to have to execute it! Thanks for the comment!

  2. Awesome! Now I have more projects! But I think I'll start with the placemat...maybe work towards the canoe later.

  3. Bodecoa - Yeah, I definitely think the canoe is on the "advanced" end of the chopstick spectrum. Good choice. Thanks for the comment!
