If a tree falls in the wood can you turn it into a table? Turns out you can. That’s what Eli Arnow and Matt Rohrs do for a living they make furniture but the wood they use is strictly from fallen trees. Of course this means that after Hurricane Sandy, the woodworkers had more than enough raw material to use. The fitting name of their business is Epilogue Woods and what started out as a hobby has become a full time money making operation.
“We have no real background,” said Arnow. “My father received all the tools a wood shop could possibly need from his dad’s uncle 30 years ago, and they’ve just been sitting in the basement, rusting, until about six months ago.” Arnow built his first fallen tree table over a winter break by following instructions on a YouTube DIY video.
Arnow built a table once over winter break by relying on a YouTube video. Rohrs, a 25-year-old New Canaan native, said the last wood shop experience was in, well, wood shop class at New Canaan High. The pair taught themselves their craft mostly via the Internet. “Many YouTube videos later, we’ve made tables,” Arnow said.
Since the big storm, Arnow estimates that they have an inventory of about 160 boards. It’s a way of making something good out of something bad.
