Michael Pinto


Michael has been woodworking since high school , primarily making utility items for personal use such as cabinets, furniture and later showcases for model car collectors. A WGO kiosk at a woodturning show around 2008 caught his attention and he promptly bought a lathe, booked a lesson with Richard Pikul and became a member of the WGO. Michael focuses on utility items and occasionally ventures wherever the wood takes him.

Some of his work can be seen at michaelpinto.ca and Instagram @mwoodturner.
