Michael Mikutowski became a full-time woodworker in 1986. What began as a cottage industry in a garage has grown to a 7500-square foot workshop designing and creating wood accessories for the home and office. Mikutowski Woodworking is committed to excellence in design, function and workmanship. Only the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods are used to inspire consistency in the quality of these functional pieces. Michael's handmade wooden jewelry boxes, clocks and bookends are a popular choice for personal and business gifts.
"My inspiration comes from the natural world around us. I see shapes and designs wherever I go. I walk or ski in the woods every morning and I see new shapes in the world around me that are so gorgeous that I am inspired to try to make them work in the woodworking shop. Sometimes it takes a few years before I use a design or pattern that I have seen. I draw every day and save all of my drawings. It is fun to see where the designs originate, somes I am surprised at how long ago I sketched something."
