Michael’s designs have been manufactured by nine companies including Country View Woodworking, Creative Elegance, Crystal Valley Woodworking, Johnston Casuals, J. Persing (Formerly Persing Enterprises), J. Troyer & Company (Formerly Dutch Fireside), LC Direct (AKA – Lacquercraft a division of Sansom Holding Ltd.), RH Yoder & Schwartz Woodworking. Michael believes whole heartedly in the importance of quality and craftsmanship in his furniture as well as his strong desire to manufacture all of his designs right here in the United States. For this reason, many of Michael’s manufacturing partners are Amish builders based in Indiana and Ohio. His work has been featured in many articles, exhibits and notably in the book “Becoming a Product Designer” by Bruce Hannah. He has been nominated for the ISFD Pinnacle Award (Formerly ASFD) on three occasions.
