The Beady Eyed Craftster is our (mostly) weekly round-up of shiny (mostly) art, design, craft and illustration related links from across the inter­nets.

This week: wooden topography, polygons, animated architecture, photography and insults.

Below the Boat make wonderful depth maps of lakes and coastlines from layers of laser cut wood. I’m a big fan of maps in general, and the three dimensional nature of these works is really appealing. [Via Colossal]

• Staying with wooden contours, check out these sculptures made from sanding hundreds of pencils. Artist Jessica Drenk starts by gluing lots and lots of pencils together, then takes a sander to them. The results are really cool. [Again via Colossal]

• Also sculptural, but far smaller, are these geometrically styled salt and pepper shakers from Von Tundra. They look like rock formations or the maybe the fortress of a bad guy from an 80’s fantasy movie! [Via DesignSponge]

• Video time: The ABC of Architects is an animated whistle-stop tour through an A-Z of famous architects and their best known buildings. It’s a fun little video whether your an architecture fan or not.

• Photography now: the winners for National Geographic’s 2012 Photography competition have been announced. There is some absolutely stunning stuff. If you’ve got a couple of hours to spare there are worst things you could do than look through all the submissions, otherwise just browse through the editors picks.

• And finally: insults. Illustrator Mr. Bingo sends profanity laden illustrated postcard insults to randomly selected Twitter volunteers.  It sounds a bit mean-spirited (if consensually so), but the insults are so deadpan that the results are kind of charming in an odd sort of way.
