Michael Doten

Custom Fine Woodworking

Inspired by the incomparable work of Sam Maloof, Michael takes pride in producing hand-crafted fine furniture; beautiful, practical daily use items; and the occasional whimsical art piece. He is also a talented hand- build potter and incorporates all of his artistic interests into his work. Born and raised in southern California, Michael spent his childhood and early teen-years scuba diving off sunset cliffs, free diving for abalone, and apprenticing to local woodworkers and craftsmen. He now splits his time between Mendocino and the East Bay.
