A Radio For Treehuggers

It’s a wooden log and a radio. That ain’t all folks. It’s also solar powered and if Mr. Sunshine isn’t happy that day, there’s a dynamo powered by your finger. I love the giant wooden rotary dials to change stations and volume. The old school retractable antenna nostalgically tugs at my heart too. Sure I have no idea what station I’m changing to but it looks like an ewok crafted it so I totally approve. BTW, 80% of the radio is oak. The rest are radio components. Treehuggers might like it… or will they hate it since it’s made from a tree? Hmmm

  • Really cool eco-friendly radio. The fact that it's solar- and hand-powered I think makes up for the “tree” part…do they use recycled wood?

    out of curiosity, what would be more eco friendly than a tree? Last I checked, trees are a renewable resource thus making this low impact. Had plastic or steel been used wouldn’t the impact of the energy used to create these man made materials far exceeded the simple lathe operations used to create this wood object?
