Hacking materials to convert them to a purpose other than what they were designed for is really nothing new. Ball jars converted to lights or planters. Galvanized gas pipe converted to shelving units or shoe racks. The list goes on. Very rarely though do they get converted to such an extent that you have a Monster Garage “how in the f did they do that?” conversation with yourself. The Re-Ply chair is one of those projects. Using discarded cardboard–much like all those smiley face boxes gathering outside the office–artist Dan Goldstein creates a reclining chair that’s probably best described as Eames meets Captain Planet. There are going to be a number of options available for coverings, logos and base colors, but the principle remains the same: molded cardboard affixed to a base with nothing more than a pair of bolts. It’s pretty freakin genius if you ask us.

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.
