My name is Michael Laico and I have been operating my wood shop and sign shop for more than 35 years. I have always enjoyed woodworking.
We live in the beautiful mountains of northern Greenville, South Carolina. My daughter Lauren enjoys helping me in the shop when she has time and hiking with me. This picture was taken at Max Patch in North Carolina along the Appalachian Trail.
Most days I spend in the shop is started by planning ahead and reviewing orders, then finishing up the previous days work, selecting raw lumber for the next projects. When purchasing hardwoods, I purchase the best quality sustainable hardwoods available, most often I will pay a higher price but in return I get the best quality hardwoods.
Each piece is different in grain and color even if the wood is the same pieces. I work with highly figured walnut, cherry, maple, ambrosia maple, birds-eye maple along with some imported woods as needed depending on the project. Trying to source from sustainably managed forest lumber.
Each piece I create is skillfully crafted from solid wood, no veneers, sanding is all done by hand which takes an incredible amount of time to get each piece smooth and ready for applying the final finish. Applying the finish is also done by hand, no brushes or pads, this is where the character and grain of the wood is really revealed. They are handcrafted heirlooms lasting a lifetime!
My work is unique and will make your home inviting. An inviting home is warm, full of love and where the family and friends are always welcome and is the best feeling in the world. Home cooked meals, desserts, fellowship, love of family and friends make our home a Happy Home!
Beautiful home cooked food deserves to be beautifully presented. My handmade cutting boards and serving boards are perfect for preparing food and serving straight to the table. A good cutting board belongs in every kitchen. If you enjoy cooking and entertaining guest on a regular basis, you may want to have multiple boards for cutting, cheese tasting, pizzas, hors d’oeuvres, wine tasting and dessert displays.
