So a Guy Wants to Make You a Throne

None You’re watching the new season of Game of Thrones.


You’re not watching it while sitting on an actual throne.

Not good.

Here’s how to change that: Halldoor Woodworking, a Bridgeport-based custom crafter of Gothic wood furniture, now taking orders.

Basically, this is just one guy named Gary “Hal” Link, a kilt-wearing furniture maker with a major interest in Gothic architecture, world history and carving. You know, that old story.

Anyway, he can carve you all the things you need for a happy and productive life.

An insulated beer cooler that looks like something a pirate would have buried on a Caribbean beach: no problem.

A canvas tent for your summer camping trip—or campaign across the plains of Asia—that features intricately carved poles: he can do it.

A stately coffee table that converts to an S&M bondage rack: ... let’s just say you wouldn’t be the first.

His real magnum opus, though, is a recent special order: a throne modeled on the 5-foot 10-inch coronation chair in Westminster Abbey that princes Charles, William and George will all one day sit on.

And if they ever need a multifunctional coffee table...
