After graduating from college, Matt Snyder landed in the small art community of Taos, New Mexico, where he learned the craft of furniture making. After returning home to West Virginia, Snyder turned his attention to re purposing old wood and turning it into beautiful home furnishings and furniture. Bear Wood Company, located on Main Street in Hurricane WV, is Matt's new gallery and workshop.

Utilizing wood from old barns, houses, and even school gymnasiums, Snyder says it's all about sustainability and re using old wood, some of which is impossible to purchase new.
