A raw oak finish studded with hundreds of steel nails make little sense until Joe works his magic with some navy string to tie it all together – voila! An octopus! If you’re interested in getting one commissioned of your very own, check out his website for many more beautiful examples of his work. He also does some pretty neat hand-painted wooden bow ties. Also a great cause, they’ve partnered with Trees For the Future so that for ever Tie Tree purchased, 10 trees will be planted in the purchasers name. What are you waiting for? Go plant some trees and be a part of a positive change!

    I'm a New York Reef Enthusiast and Fish Nerd, amateur photographer, dog lover, beer brewer/drinker, cocktail mixer, semi-seasoned chef, Prosecco Indulging, lightly foul-mouthed, slightly antagonistic, sorta-artistic, wordy bookworm of a girl. Dog mommy of three, an Abyssinian dubbed "Mau", plus one Dwarf Cuttlefish and a few Clarions. I have a tattoo of an Octopus with flowers on my rear. I ride my bike to the beach and sip bourbon with a good (reef) book while watching the waves. I like to think I'm witty and charming - but I'll let you decide.
