Mike on ottawavalleywood.com

 
Mike's cabinet-making career began when he commenced construction of his own house approximately 20 years ago, and, as with all things unfinished, his attention gradually wandered to less grandiose projects.

Like his house, his designs in wood follow a common theme - a mixture of sophisticated joinery and simplicity of geometrical lines that pick up the grain or colour of a board, enabling the wood to speak for itself. He particularly enjoys employing the rough (waney) edges of a board to achieve a dramatic sweep or curve, and has been infrequently caught gluing back the bark that has fallen off a board. He refers to this form as "rustic modern".

Although much of his time is devoted to the construction of large items, he still finds time to maintain a small collection for sale in Valley Artisans, ranging from wooden trays to coffee tables, benches and clocks made from native burls.
