Lumber Made From Recycled Newspaper...

If there is one thing that we can all agree on that is wasted by throwing away, it would be newspapers. What if we could re-use this waste to create something useful?
Developed for design firm vij5Mieke Meijer may have the solution with this newspaper wood called, Kranthout. It looks like wood recreating the appearance of wood grain with the layers of paper and texture of the newsprint. The material not only looks like wood but can be drilled into and sanded like real wood...
...Pretty slick!
