“Michael has a passion about wood and connecting to the life around us. He uses his designs to bring a second life to the wood. That was what made the work different. He never wanted to just saw up wood like it was a material to fulfill a design. He used wood as if it had a voice and had talked with him about how to use it to make the beauty shine on the life that was a tree.”

Michael has always had a passion for nature and building. Originally from the Seattle area, Michael grew up playing in the tall forests and studying local flora and fauna.  His family custom built their home with a 150 foot Cedar growing through the deck, as they had refused to cut it down to make room for the house. It’s an image that shaped Michael and has influenced his work throughout the years. He studied art and went on to a career in finish carpentry and construction. He learned in techniques in wood, drying, structure, layout, and European and Japanese joinery design. These skills have given him a unique approach to his craft. 

As a contractor and steward of nature, Michael began recycling wood from jobs and incorporating them into his furniture designs, art pieces and sculpture. He realized the wood could be utilized to astounding ends as beautiful furniture. He feels strongly about mindful use of our natural resources, so that what is made can last long enough to allow the next generation of forests to grow.
