Bees are a crucial part of the ecosystem without bees to act as pollinators, many plant species wouldn't be able to reproduce at all! It's unfortunate then that bees are struggling to survive in many parts of the world. However, [Louise Cosgrove] is doing her part building homes for bees in old television sets. The project started when Louise's son-in-law left 100 (!) analog TVs at her home, having already recycled the picture tubes. That sounds kind of impolite to us, but we'll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they had some sort of agreement. [Louise] realised the empty television cases had plenty of ventilation and would make ideal homes for bees. By filling the empty boxes with natural materials like wood, bamboo and bark, it creates nesting places that the bees can use to lay their eggs. We've seen bees on Hackaday beefore (tee-hee) like this beehive wired for remote monitoring. [Thanks to Stuart Longland for the tip!] Filed under: green hacks

Sure it's great for making sure people don't bump into valuable stuff, but the raised height gives a deceptive sense of scale to the work. Some museums do it right. Many years ago I was at the Design Museum at Canary Wharf in London, and in addition to all the stuff roped off, the museum had assembled a group of about a dozen modern chairs, all reproductions of the iconic designs of the twentieth century, and you were welcome to sit in them. I learned more about chairs and appreciating modern design in twenty minutes that you could possibly believe. ___________________ This Tools Craft" section is provided courtesy of Joel Moskowitz, founder of Tools for Working Wood , the Brooklyn-based catalog retailer of everything from hand tools to Festool; check out their online shop here .

Most of the pieces are made out of found wood Alex has brought back from all over the place: some pieces are from Indonesia, some are from right there in New Orleans. Keep an eye out for the 500-pound cypress table in the living room. It's a stunner. Peppered about the reclaimed items is a curated collection of vintage finds. Both men have a penchant for throwback pieces, and when they moved in together they started combing through their existing inventory as well as snagging new items to enrich each room. The pair ended up with so much art, for example, they've have been able to create gallery walls in many of the three-bedroom, two-bath house's rooms. One honors their love of birds, while another captures their flair for the eclectic. Overall, this touch and more has truly transformed what was once your typical Craftsman into a home that captures its owners' personalities and tastes.

I'm sure most of us have spent a chunk of our childhood and more sitting on those basic wood picnic tables that are not only uncomfortable but they're awkward to climb into, especially if you're wearing a dress. Dirk Wynants has figured out a solution that solves both issues in the Virus collection for Belgian brand Extremis . Virus is a playful collection of picnic tables that come in a 2-seater, 3-seater, 4-seater, and 5-seater, letting you pick the size you need for your family or allowing you to choose a mixture if you want to plan for backyard parties. Each version is based on the same seating frame, no matter the size, creating continuity in the line. Whether you have a 2-seater or a 5-seater, each person gets their own individual seat, unlike traditional picnic tables where you're required to climb over the attached bench. Another smart aspect of this design is that not everyone has the space for the larger tables making these a great option.

The fun, functional control of hands-on fabrication is no secret to designers, and it's similarly obvious to kids. You could say the same for the creative potential of simple materials. The new Hamaika furniture project, created by Spanish designer Unai Rollan, taps into that tactile interest, blending simplicity and functionality for both adults and not-there-yets. The name Hamaika is Basque for 'eleven,' which references the project's core design feature: each piece of furniture is made from 11 pieces of wood, each cut to the same length. The little chair in particular captures the pared down inventiveness of Enzo Mari's DIY minimalism with an IKEA-type user-friendliness. The result is a small person sized piece of furniture that would be easy to use as a learning project on tools and dynamic center of balance. Or it could be the base for more creative expression, a blank canvas for your progeny's monstrous Mod Podge masterpiece.
