Dealer Lars Mikkelsen, Built In Wood: Craftsman Style Furniture

New to Good Sam this year, Lars Mikkelsen from Cayucos, CA makes finely handcrafted 1:12 scale furniture. He works mainly in the Craftsman (Mission or Arts & Crafts) style. Lars' miniature work stays true to the full size version in both scale and technique. He also creates and turns tiny, detailed bowls, often using exotic woods. Email: builtinwood@gmail.com.
