Continuing today's theme of natural materials , our cousins across the pond have alerted us to this " eco-friendly wooden plasma TV ."

High-tech carpentry is nothing new, of course, but it's usually been reserved for sylvan hobbyists and other odd blokes. But LG is going mainstream with a woodland look of its own for a new 52-inch flat-screen set destined for commercial customers. Crave UK wasn't allowed to film the TV but ingeniously came up with an artist's rendition as seen here.

"The bezel is made of compressed wood (derived from renewable forests) and finished in white water-based paint," the cheeky monkeys write. "We were also pleased to learn LG has used lead-free or low-lead internal components. The screen is a tech-crazed hippy's dream come true."
