RUPHUS Woodman by Matt Raphael  @FGIDEAS

Matt Raphael has been designing and building homes that utilise natural materials in the Portland area for over 20 years. RUPHUS is smaller-scale extension of his ethos, which includes within its catalog a range of wooden iPod docks and bicycle accessories. A complete bicycle was a natural progression, but as thinking outside the box is Matt’s specialty, he had to design something entirely different.
The Woodman, featured here, is effectively half skateboard and half bike. That’s because there are 11 layers of Canadian Maple that have been laminated with carbon fiber. Raphael also included a removable glovebox that makes it easy to store items while commuting.
