Mike Mikutowski is committed to excellence in design, function and workmanship. His passion is to create a design in which the natural luster and rich grain can be blended to form beautiful contrasts. Only the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods are used to inspire consistency in the quality of these functional pieces.
Mike is also committed to raising environmental awareness and minimizing waste. He believes Mikutowski Woodworking exists to help people fall in love with the world. One of his favorite quotes is from Baba Dioum, a Senegalese writer and conservationist who wrote, "In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught." He continues to design pieces which integrate the small samples of off-all thus generating very little scrap. Any wood that is determined to be unusable is donated to the local community schools, nursing homes, and elderly services programs for art and craft education.
