Edwood Studios is Michael Brozgul. The day we visited him back in 2013, he was busy making a bed for his mom. Her’s was ruined in events triggered by Hurricane Sandy and Brozgul saw an opportunity to be a good son and to further his furniture making skills. He referred to this project as a “Beta Test” for his furniture line. Included in the many large scale tools in the shop was a lathe which he had been employing to make beautiful turned vessels and stools of Texas hardwoods. He was also turning out charcuterie boards of the Brazilian exotic, Imbuia.
