I lost my dear brother USAF MSGT Severino “Noel” Reyes in 2007. It was he that Brought me and a friend to Colorado where I was inspired to conceptualize the Rocker “Tumba tumba”
He was a friend, a brother and a confidante. He believed in me and supported me when I was just starting with my woodworking business.
In memory of my dear brother, i designed the Noel chair. As tough as he is in his endeavors and spirit, the back splats are of Dungon (ironwood) . As flexible and as giving as Noel, the back splats has the flex of a bow and will flex to follow the bend of your lumbar. The crown is of Saplungan. The seats are made from Ipil as well as the arm rests. I introduced the Noel chair last christmas and have lined up a substantial list for orders. I have immortalized my brothers name!
“You may long be gone brother but your name will always be remembered”.
