Lighting Fixture from Crate Wood

From Sebastien Demeulenaere comes this wall-mounted fixture made from reused crates (though I think it could be done just as easily with pallet wood). The orange light emanating from the inside gives great ambiance, and the filter can be switched out at will to provide different colors. Of course, the use of otherwise-discarded materials is certainly a bonus in my book.
