Former city employee, Shuhei Ogawara built a 4-meter (13-ft) long canoe out of 7,382 chopsticks. It took him over two years collecting the used chopsticks from his work cafeteria and three months of gluing.
To waterproof the boat, he coated the entire thing with polyester resin coat. The weight is around 30 kilograms (66 lbs), which is a bit heavier than an ordinary cedar canoe.
Special thanks to friend of the site, Andrew Green for the lead.
