Meet Mike and Becky Lusk!
I have been working with wood to some extent since 1985, and in 2000 my passion grew into my profession.
Scandinavian design plays a large part in the items I craft. From bent wood boxes, to curved top trunks, and handmade cabinets- each piece is carefully crafted and sanded to a smooth finish. My favorite source of new ideas comes from old sources. I love to explore museums and look at traditional pieces and then incorporate those styles and ideas into my own design.
Most of the items I make are meant to be finished by the customer. I primarily use basswood for the pieces that people want to finish by rosmal or paint. Many of the basswood pieces can be carved on for additional personalization. I also use wide variety of other hardwoods for projects that are to be stained.
Many of the pieces I make are pictured on the shop page featured on this website. Please check back occasionally, as I add new pieces to my line of wood products periodically.
I became interested in woodcarving very early in life. My maternal Grandfather, Hans Simonson, a Norwegian immigrant, was a woodcarver and my mother, Jean Giese, is a Vesterheim Gold-medalist in rosemaling– I guess you could say it’s in my blood!
While in high school, I began taking woodcarving classes through Vesterheim Norwegian American Museum in Decorah, IA. My instructors included prominent woodcarvers from Norway, the US, and Sweden. In 1992, I was awarded a gold medal in woodcarving from Vesterheim. I enjoy carving figures of people and animals, ale bowls, acanthus, dragonstil, and relief scenes.
I currently teach figure carving, ale bowl carving, and dragonstil carving at Vesterheim Museum, Decorah, IA, Norskedalen Heritage Center, Coon Valley, WI, and at various woodcarving clubs around the area. For more information please click the Contact Us buttons at the bottom or top of this page.
