Hello!

My name is Michele...

I am the happily married wife of 15 fantastic years to a man who encourages my dreams and success, raising two incredible children, enjoying this life of adventure we live...

Born and raised on a farm in South Africa, I was brought up in a world of simplicity and entrepreneurship, and learned it's most important to do what you love and live life with passion. St Augustine is my home today as a proud American Citizen, where I live my life pursuing my dreams through woodwork...

The first time I picked up a power tool (an old skill saw) and transformed a dresser into a media stand out of sheer effort to be frugal, I realized my desire to explore the world of wood and it's possibilities, but not in the aspect of refinishing nor manipulating the work of others, but to CREATE!

Fast forward from Nov 2015, to present day ~ I am a self-taught woodworker (thanks to YouTube), forever learning, absolutely loving what I do. The process of creating something exquisite out of discarded or simple lumber is extremely nourishing to my soul...

I've had the opportunity to create a variety of special pieces for friends and family, which has enabled my new-found ability to devise my own plans, as well as modify others. This in itself has opened the door to endless possibilities for future projects, and therefore fuels my excitement for this venture...

The world is filled with people who wander around most of their lives trying to find their purpose or "WHY". I'm thrilled to have found my "WHY"... For The Love Of Wood.
