Turning chopsticks into home decor

CBC featured work by Felix Böck, a PhD candidate in UBC’s forestry department.

Böck studies bamboo as a building material and started the project ChopValue, which turns recycled chopsticks into home decor products.

“The production is totally based on the length of a chopstick,” Böck said. “In the beginning I didn’t expect we could make table tops, but it works great.”
