Tyranny of the two-by-four and four-by-eight

It's not hard to get behind someone who dedicates his time to building affordable housing, but it's rare to find someone who is crafting such beautiful homes from little more than trash and leftovers.

A counter made from wood slices
Wine bottle bases in a Dutch door
A ceiling made from picture frame corners
A stove salvaged from an old ship
Flooring made from wine corks
And for all you creepy taxidermy fans out there, a chair made from cattle bones

(See the rest of the slideshow here. Believe it or not, there are more fantastic pictures. I had to stop myself from posting them all.)

What a talent! I especially love his varied, to say the least, background: intelligence officer in the Army, a college dance instructor, an antiques dealer and a syndicated cryptogram puzzle maker.
