WELCOME to Michael’s Woodcraft and Blog
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.On my site you will find my woodwork and my blog. 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 handmade things for over 30 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 and Blog. I hope you will stop by often.
Below is a sample of a few items I make, you can find many of my handmade items for sale on my site.

End-Grain Maple and Cherry Chef Cutting Board

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 Work!
