Very nice article about MakerBay and the Maker Culture in Hong Kong in HK01 – a new print publication.
Speaking of woodworking, we usually work with imported processed wood. Yet, have you ever thought of why these woods can be so neat? It is because the uneven parts of the logs were cropped, and will be landfilled and wasted. To reduce this kind of waste, founder of “The Wasted”, Dickson Yan chose to upcycle Hong Kong wasted logs and make furniture and art pieces. He cut and dried the logs by himself, and kept the original appearance of the trees. He does his best to make sure no wood is wasted.
