Michael and Cynthia Gibson


Michael and Cynthia
Our latest featured artists are Michael and Cynthia Gibson

Michael's love of woodworking began at an early age. As a young man, he spent long hours as a shipwright’s apprentice building wooden yachts on the banks of the River Crouch in his native England.

After moving to the US at the age of thirty, Mike began a career as a finish carpenter and later a builder. Mike enjoys boating, hiking, fencing, photography and racing cars. After selling his racing car, Mike began exploring the world of woodturning. When sufficiently bitten, he purchased a Powermatic lathe and taught himself to turn. Now the workshop rivals the paddock. Mike turns full time and is constantly challenging himself with new projects.

Michael and his wife, Cynthia, collaborate on many pieces. Cynthia's love of ethnic design greatly influences her pyrographic embellishments.
