Michael is a woodworker, furniture designer, and instructor at Allied Woodshop. He began woodworking with the desire to reconnect to the work ethics and craftsmanship of our past. Also a schooled musician, he learned the importance of composing and refining a piece until it stood on its own. Recognizing the parallels between the two seemingly disparate mediums of woodworking and music, Michael set out to establish a footing in the world of the dedicated craftsman. Utilizing locally sourced materials and classic joinery, he aims to bring the old into the new with modern interpretations of enviable classics. Michael teaches Furniture Making, Hand Tools woodworking, and Intro to Woodworking classes at Allied Woodshop.
