Michael Fischer, HWC
More than forty years ago, Mike crafted his first Secret Box for his girlfriend. Since then, his passion for woodworking has grown into both a career and a world-renowned business, Heartwood Creations.
"My passion for woodworking began as a child when I was inspired by watching my father make furniture for our home. When I joined the Boy Scouts, I read a book called "A Reverence for Wood." That book, in combination with my love for nature, gave me a deep appreciation for wood and trees. I've made many things throughout my life from wood, but boxes have remained my primary focus. An early teacher introduced me to the sliding dovetail which i use to this day on Heartwood's little Secret boxes. I soon discovered elaborate and exotic woods and so began my love affair.
"Woodworking has always been therapeutic for me. The workshop in my parent's basement quickly became my favorite and most productive outlet. My love for the medium and the joy I receive form working with my hands continues to inspire me decades later."
