My good friend Mat is one talented guy. He left his art director position at arguably the best ad agency for highly creative work to do what really drives him: making beautiful things with his hands. Bellboy is his company name & this is its latest stunner - a low lying lounge chair made from reclaimed timbers of a New York City Water Tower. I've watched this being made over the past 2+ months & can attest to its intricate detail. Can you see that each piece is a mirror image of the one opposite it? Blows my mind. 

The chair is being auctioned off this weekend as part of the 12 x 12 show - 12 woodworkers chosen to create a piece from one of 12 New York City sites - to benefit woodworking education for the non-profit Brooklyn Woods. Go check it out at Wanted Design

Big big congrats, Mat!
