A chipping tool has been in use for more than 2,000 years.
It’s made from the leftover wood from a wooden hammer or machete.
Now, a company in Alberta is using recycled lumber to make the chipping tools for its new hammock, which will be available in the spring.
The tool, the chipper, is made from old pine, birch, maple, cypress and a variety of other hardwoods.
“It’s just kind of the stuff that we used to use to make things in our homes in the past,” said Ben Winterer, co-owner of the company that is designing the hammock.
“We’re trying to create something that’s sustainable, but not something that would take us to the moon.”
The chipping works by pushing a piece of wood through a pipe, a process that uses a pressure-sensitive blade to cut the wood.
It takes about 15 minutes to make, so Winterers said it can be made at home in a few hours.
“We’re hoping to be able to have this product in our market as soon as next year,” he said.
“For us, it’s a very important product that we’re able to make that’s going to be available to the general public.”
The company is already testing the chippers on a few customers.
The first batch will be in the summer and the rest in the fall.
The company will also be selling the hammocks in its online store.
The product is expected to be sold for $120.
Wintiers said he is also looking at expanding to other parts of Canada.
