Meet Mike Lassiter
Phone: please text 352-409-0370
Born in Quantico Virginia, and moving with his military family to Osceola County, Michael grew up in a beautiful rural setting with his five siblings in their modest country home. Good work ethics were instilled here in Michael's early life, as the family worked the land to help support their needs. A t the age of 14 he became interested in a neighbor's carpentry work, where he spent whatever time would allow in observation of his projects. The neighbor giving young Michael some of his first woodworking tools, ignited his interest.
Finally completing his 39-year career in retail grocery, he set out to enjoy life as a local "Gentleman Farmer", Bee Keeper, and to search out how he wanted to express his creativity with woodworking as an art form. Wood working took an interesting "spin" as he began exploring the surprising beauty hidden in woodturning. Unique opportunities lay in the fallen timbers left for scrap, now live again through the guided eye and hands as Michael rebirths each piece to live a new majestic beauty.
