MARINE GATEWAY.. 2 HELL

My bro-in-law...

Matt Hales is a woodworking genius, sharing a large East Van studio with other talents such as Christian Woo. He attended the world-renowned Inside Passage School of Woodworking, on BC's Sunshine Coast, when results of his first forays into furniture design received rave reviews - mine included - reflecting a yen that couldn't reasonably be ignored. I'm a lucky girl getting one of his handmade chopping boards as a recent gift - even running my hands over its luxurious surface is a treat... and just having a set of his simple-yet-perfectly-smooth wooden coasters in my home makes me happy. Below is one of his first major creations; check out his website for more: http://www.matthaleswoodwork.com/.
