Hi, my name is Michael and I live in the remote upstate mountains of South Carolina. I love working with wood but I also enjoy cooking, grilling, baking, hiking, camping, gardening, mountain wildlife and bird watching. My blog will focus on all the things I love and is a way for me to share my woodcraft. I hope you find my blog interesting and will visit often.
I love wood, love the beauty of figured wood, the warmth and being able to create beautiful things that people enjoy and cherish. I have been working with wood and selling my handmade work for over 35 years out of my shop. Beautiful things made from wood give purpose, are functional and pleasure when used. All my items are handcrafted one at a time, crafted from nothing but the best quality of wood and supplies. My shop is a small, one-man, low production shop specializing in unique, one-of-a-kind items.
Thank you for visiting my site, please browse around and look at my work, everything is handmade. If you have any questions be sure to contact me.

This end grain Maple and Cherry Cutting Board is very popular. I use as much locally grown species of wood that I can such as walnut, black walnut, red oak, birdseye or fiddleback maple, and cherry. On occasion I do also use other woods that I purchase from many different wood suppliers such a Brazilian cherry, bloodwood, maple burl and paduck.
My work is available online and from several galleries across the southeast. I also do custom work on request. Want to find out more? Check out my beautiful cutting boards, and my unique cutting boards!
I would be glad to custom make a special board for you. Send me an email on what you are looking for and I will give you a price.
