From his small workshop in the hill country of Southern Indiana, Michael Combs works in burl treen, specializing in
black ash burl treen. Treen is an old English word meaning "made from the tree". Obviously this would include everything from toothpicks to the largest wooden ships. Edward Pinto, scholar of English treen narrowed the definition to "objects no larger than a spinning wheel". Still during the "age of wood" the variety of objects produced in this narrowed definition was vast. Michael works within a further narrowing of the definition: "treen for the table, food preparation, and related articles."

Michael Combs handcarves in the style of Native American and Colonial wooden ware [treen or treenware] and the unique branch within it that is considered by many to be the pinnacle of wooden ware, burl treen.

Michael Combs Burl Treen has been featured in Martha Stewart Living magazine.
