  1. What beautiful, carefully made pieces. We share a love of beautiful wood. Whether wood furniture, wooden spoons, a beautiful cutting board, or a wooden pen, I’m always attracted to hand crafted wooden pieces.

    • thank you Nanook, glad you visited my site. I am following your site now and love the pictures of the black bears and your wrting about them. I especially love the picture witht the mama bear and cubs in the tree! I love your site…

      We have the black bears here too but I don’t run acorss them very often.


  2. I started woodburning designs into cutting boards a few months ago, creating some really nice pieces. Though the designs were custom, my boards were still cheap, mass-produced boards available from department stores. Today I received my first Michael’s Woodcraft board, a custom piece, which I’ll be using on my next big pyrography project. It’s so much nicer to work with a real board. Rather than the look of something you might find on the shelves of a store, I’m now working with something that you might see in the kitchen of a chef. Thanks so much for this custom piece. I’ll send you photographs once I’m done with the design.

  3. Your craftsmanship is beautiful! I appreciate the beauty of wood, too. I also love bluebirds and have several bluebird houses. The one they use the most is painted bright blue, the color of the male’s feathers. I wonder if that is by chance or are they drawn to that color?

    • thank you, nice to see you visit my site! Don’t you just love the bluebirds, they are just beautiful and a pleasure to watch. I noticed five bluebirds earlier today, one peeking into the house, two on the house and the other 2 sitting around it. They could maybe drawn to the color.

  4. Hi Michael,

    Firstly, thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂

    You do have a lovely space here. The woodwork and craftsmanship is brilliant. I love how the final piece looks . Beautiful! Loved the bird houses too 🙂

  5. I have one of the smaller Jet lathes. I used to turn wooden objects also; I have been so diverse with my art; now it’s photography that I like; it’s been a never ending journey for me.

  6. Hi again Michael–I meant to tell you I had a really good friend from Greenville when I was in college—Janet “Lele” McWhite—she’s Janet Williams now—we were camp counselors together many moons ago at Camp Merri Mac for girls in Balck Mt , NC plus attended UGA.
    Also please know that I love your work–as the retired art teacher, I greatly admire your ability to create such beautiful things from wood—I’d love to buy a piece or two…. 🙂

    • thank you Charlie!! I have an even longer handle for those that make churn ice cream that helps to get all the way to the bottom of the chrun easily.

      I am headed to visit your site now…

      thank you for visiting my site.

  7. Great pieces, Michael. We, too, have a lot of woodwork artists in our area (Western VA and West Virginia). A few are exhibiting at the annual Maple Festival in Highland County. You can find more info at the Highland County Chamber of Commerce website, if you are interested.

  8. Wow, wunderbare Dinge zauberst du in deiner Werkstatt, Michael. Ich liebe Holz. Vorallem diese gedrechselten Sachen sind so schön weich beim Anfassen.

    Du hast sehr sehr schöne Arbeiten gefertigt. In anderen Posts habe ich tolle Werkzeuge gesehen. Ich kann die Freude nachempfinden, die das Bearbeiten mit Holz macht.

    Ich werde hier öfter reinschauen und freue mich schon auf neue Sachen von dir.

    Liebe Grüße

  9. Great work, Michael! My husband and I also love working with wood and are constantly making something for house and garden. At present I’m doing some xmas decorations.

  10. We went to a Christmas party with a gift exchange game of choosing and stealing the gifts. Your daughter was there, and the gift she contributed was one of your tear-drop cutting boards. Needless to say, it was fought over, but we ended up with it. It’s beautiful! Thanks so much!

  11. Beautiful craftsmanship . Working with wood brings so much pleasure I know from my my late father in law who loved making carving and creating with all sorts of wood too .

    • Bonsoir Sally,
      I don’t speak French, just know a few words. I remember looking at your site, your recipes and I did read your About page. Several of your recipes look delicious, I printed several, thank you. I am glad you visited my site and thank you for your kind comments.

      • Bonjour, Michael.. 🙂 I was just wondering if you got my email that I sent a couple of days ago. I asked for an estimate of shipping charges… if you did not get it, let me know and I’ll send it again, ok?

  12. Bonjour Michael,
    You are such a talented artist, I’m enchanted by your artwork and creative ideas!
    Do you have Facebook Fanpage for your blog? I looked it but I couldn’t find the link here.

    • Hi Leia, thank you for your nice comments. I do not have a Facebook right now but I do need to get that going. I was at your site earlier and posted. Looked around your site for a way to follow you by Email and did not see it? I would love to follow your site.

  13. Beautiful work! I wish you lived closer to me so I could ask you to make me 2 small wooden spoons. I have one, it’s the size of a teaspoon and I would love more but alas can’t find them anywhere.
    Have a super day.
    🙂 Mandy

    • Thank you Mandy! Blogging is a wonderful thing, meeting people all over the world. If I remember correctly you are in southern Africa? I am so glad you visited my site and thank you for leaving a comment, I hope you get a chance to visit again soon! 🙂

      I love a your site, all of your photographs are beautiful!

  14. Thanks for visiting, Michael, and for your kind comments on the scarf I knit. How lovely to receive a nice gift of scarves. Your woodworking is wonderful. I especially like the two toned pieces and the cutting boards would add a lovely wood tone and touch of nature to any table setting or kitchen/dining room.
