Michael Bardwell | Mooning Gnome Woodworking
I've always been interested in creating with my hands and finally took a woodturning class at Pratt Fine Art Institute here in Seattle in December of 2019. Then covid hit and I wasn't able to use their shop space so started turning on my back porch. It's only gone up from there and I have my own shop space now. I've continued to create various custom wood objects from bowls, handles, shifter knobs, baby rattles, kitchen utensils, and cuttingboards. I'm always up for a challenge and do custom orders as well.
When I'm not working with wood I enjoy trying new restaurants, hanging with my cats, going to Mariner's games, and hiking in the PNW with my wife.
