Whether you're partnering with someone on a marriage or just a furniture business, long term success boils down to working your wood just the way they like it. If you happen to have the same partner for both endeavors, all the better, as proven by OWG Chairs.
From a long-married Idahoan couple, OWG's Adirondack chairs're built from repurposed sports equipment by the 37-year woodworking vet husband, but're inspired by his better half, who "enjoy[s] coming up with crazy, new things" for him to do, so congrats, you married every woman ever! The goods:
Hockey: Rocking a red-stained wooden seat and armrests, this model's backrest's constructed from six red & black Easton sticks -- blade-up and fanned outward -- evenly spaced by five pucks, so yours will only be the sixth biggest ass sitting on it.
Golf: Boldly described as "more comfortable than you imagine", this natural wood-framed, tall-backed job rocks three vintage lefty irons on both sides of a trio of wooden drivers, but not Wooden drivers, as the Pyramid of Success can't be rested on.
Skis: With both seats and backrests made from downhill planks, the couple says they have "many skis available so you should be able to pick the colors that are best for you", with past numbers consisting of brands like Rossignol, Dynastar, Kastle, Head, and Elan, which you clearly lack considering you've turned your skis into a chair.
While their output's limited to the type of equip they have on hand, you can get custom seats by sending them anything from old surfboards to the inside of bowling pins, a sport similar to marriage in that it's easiest when you just bump-her.
