Source Of Wood
The primary source of wood comes only from found wood. Mike is strictly against cutting of live trees for my crafts. He works with southern hardwoods. Exotic wood is used for some pens, cutting boards, pepper mills, and wine bottle stoppers.
Starting April 2020, Mike will showcase his art at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market in Atlanta, Georgia. He will also teach woodturning at Camp Mikell Folk School in Toccoa, GA, twice a year.
