Nov 19, 2013 >> Reuse & Recycle! We DIY with Wreck Creation [VIDEO]

The Lincoln Park studio and showroom of Neil Galiti is a woodworker’s dream come true. And an artist’s. And a designer’s. Basically, it’s a real treasure trove. Featuring all reclaimed furniture and vintage finds, Neil’s passion comes to life in this underground sanctuary for unexpected works of art that he’s reworked, refinished and recreated into unbelievably creative pieces. Recycled? You bet your bottom dollar it is. Although Neil has over 18 years of carpentry experience in his tool belt, he attacks each project, be it big or small, with the same amount of attention and detail.


We catch up with Neil in his workshop to whip up a simple DIY that’s as easy as it looks. But the colorful finishing result is sure to be a conversation piece for any room. We won’t tell if you brag about how long it took you to finish. Watch the G&F extra episode below:
