Michael Thomas Host, founder and owner of mth woodworks is a native of BC. The son of a forester and an avid outdoorsman, he has naturally drawn much of his inspiration from the surrounding forest habitat. Summers spent riding bikes in the mountains, and winters spent snowboarding and surfing the west coast, Michael has a deep and profound appreciation of nature and the passion in his work is fuelled by the great outdoors. Four years spent training as a yacht builder brought much valuable experience with epoxies and resins. His journey would then take him to Brooklyn New York where he would dive headfirst into custom furniture building and large scale wood installations, constantly acquiring new techniques along the way. 2002 saw Michaels return to the west coast, as he continued his professional development managing a local wood working shop.
