Pallet-Chair

Michelangelo claimed he would look at a piece of marble, see the carving in it and simply proceed to set it free. It’s kinda the same way we look at something as simplistic as a wooden pallet. We could rip those suckers apart and craft something way more useful than a stone angel (Cool Material – 1, Michelangelo – 0). These Pallet Chairs are a fine example of the rustic brilliance that can be had from something as boring as a shipping pallet. The body of each chair is pine, all the legs are oak and in a past life they supported things far heavier than you (apologies to any sumo wrestlers reading). Leave ’em out on the deck or bring them inside for the winter as you warm up by your antique wood burning stove.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
