The extent to which we use cardboard on a regular basis is generally limited to carrying recycling to the dumpster or creating templates for other projects. This is not the cae for artist Greg Olijnyk who uses it as the primary building material for his incredible sculptures. We’re not just talking about structural bases to build on top of, either. Olijnyk creates remarkably detailed robots, scooters, assembly lines, telescopes, boats and surreal displays using cardboard, glue and toothpicks. Each one of his myriad creations is impressive from both a technical build standpoint and the sheer sense of whimsy you get just looking at them. What’s more, some of his works even include functional lights, clocks and gauges for a final bit of flair.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
