Hello! My name is Jay Russell and I am from Northern Michigan. I currently reside in the Boyne City area with my wife and three children. A carpenter by trade, I have always enjoyed expressing my artistic talents in one form or another, but until recently haven't devoted a great deal of time towards it.

I choose to work with all forms of media. However I typically find myself lost in my shop creating some form of wood craft which tends to be generated directly from feel and vision versus a typical blue print or plan. I tend to let the natural beauty of the woods I use as well as my understanding of joinery and woodworking create my art.

I enjoy allowing my creativity access to the precision of wood working. By creating individual pieces that tweak common form, I am able to craft unique pieces, each expressing my personal touch.

Many of the woods that I use are native to Northern Michigan and some come directly off my property. I will on occasion use exotic lumbers if I feel they will best represent the beauty of the piece at the time. Northern Michigan is my home and inspires a large amount of the unique value of my work.
