I've been following Mark's work for a couple of years now, and what he does with used climbing rope is nothing short of amazing. He created a bookshelf/coatrack for me using my first ever rope, and it makes me smile every time I look at it. I get comments on it all the time. I've also given some of his custom work to friends as special gifts. They were always thrilled. What he is doing now with chairs and tables is simply incredible.
Mark is also very generous. I coordinate a charity event, and he always donates items to our silent auction.
Do yourself a favor and check out his website. The process of making the pieces is fascinating. I keep telling folks he's going to be famous soon, so don't miss your chance at getting "a Heffley" while you still can.
