Former Rocker Gets in Touch with Creative Side
Matt Buell is carving out a living near the Fayetteville-Goshen line.
He’s the owner and operator of a woodworking business called Revolution Wood.
After graduating from college, Buell says he took an advanced course in hard-living rock and roll.
”I went out and played a lot of shows. Had a great time and never was famous or anything special. At a certain point the lifestyle became not as good for my health as I wanted it to be,” said Buell.
Now instead of rocking with a guitar, he’s creating tables and chairs with his talented hands.
But for Matt, it’s a Rock ‘n’ Roll Revolution of a different kind.
“It’s probably just a big bag of crazy. It’s been one of the strangest things about this woodworking. I haven’t really had any kind of instructions. Most people prefer when they’re carving out images and words to use chisels. It’s time consuming and when I use chisels, I get stiches.”
If you’ve got the idea, Matt’s creative mind can make it come to life.
After all those years jamming on the guitar, working with wood was his real gift.
He already has a loyal customer base.
“The idea of bringing workmanship back into our homes and have something that is personal and not mass produced that looks like everything else.”
It’s handmade rock ‘n’ roll furniture from a true artist.
