I remember one day, USA asked Brazil to stop cutting their trees on the amazonian forest, USA mentioned that trees' oxygen belongs to all human kind in general and not to Brazil specifically.

Brazil responded by saying that they agree, and that petrol belongs to all human kind too, and that they're willing to stop cutting trees if they get some Petrol.

USA shutted the F@#k down. :D

As a professional Wood-Worker I can assure you that all shavings in this clip were recycled in some manner. I.E. Pet bedding, mulching, Bar-B-Q Grill Fire Flavoring, and Homemade pressboard along with many other uses. Wood shops professional and amateur alike always clean up before the next project unless they have several projects for the day. Then cleanup is usually reserved for those such activities as stated above as to gather more byproduct for bagging. Word-working in of itself is GREEN. No plastics or chemicals with the exception of the occasional Glues (non-toxics) and there is nothing that is not biodegradable! Including metal screws. They will rust and return to the earth as well. You will use more toilet paper in your lifetime than this guy will waste wood being a professional wood-worker!

On topic: Beautiful end results.

@ #2#6 #7 #9 #10 The remaining small wood pieces are also used to make furniture :) Nothing is wasted. And this is a custom shade,not available on the market, the woodsmith made it for himself :)

#5 Baboon you really know how to make up fairy tales.Are you really so ignorant that you believe what you said? Brazil is an EXPORTER of oil and oil products. The US purchases about 240 thousand barrels of oil from Brazil every DAY. With the new vast supply recently discovered off their coast they are looking to be a major player in the oil export business.
If you want to disparage a nation,get your facts straight so you don't continue to sound like a dope.

I don't know about you, but I'd be perfectly fine with a man-made material made to look the same way, knowing it didn't harm the environment as much. <- This was my first thought, but then I thought about other lampshades being made in factories, where they use much more resources, energy and perhaps pollute the air more, than this.

That's a lot of work for a little lamp. Also, that's a really nice lamp.
