Michael Wilson Makes Gorgeous Furniture

sculptedcradenzalarge
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be hosting a wedding shower and a rehearsal dinner…at my house, which means I have a ‘to do’ list a mile long. And, as is my M.O. when it comes to pressing deadlines and looming tasks, I’m surfing the Internet like it’s my job.

So I figured the least I could do is pretend said Internet surfing actually is my job and share some of what I’ve been ogling online with you guys, yes?

Ok, here goes. For the past hour, the object of my online affection has been one Mr. Michael Wilson, woodworker extraordinaire. The California native was a detail-obsessed sushi chef for seventeen years before focusing on handcrafting modern-organic, sculptural pieces of furniture. A self-taught woodworker, Wilson is involved in every aspect of creating a piece, from hand selecting materials from local suppliers to milling his own lumber and making his own non-synthetic oil and wax finish. Each finished product is a true work of art, branded and dated upon completion.

Wilson now resides in Wimberley and offers his one-of-a-kind chairs, tables, lamps, and sculptures locally through  Scott + Cooner.
