Mike Farrington is a professional furniture maker in Aurora, Colo. He was exposed to the craft in high school, when he worked part-time at a cabinetmaking shop. Unhappy in his first office job after college, he turned back to the trades. After a few years as a finish and restoration carpenter, he opened his own woodworking business. Ten years later, he makes both freestanding and built-in furniture in his large shop, as well as small items like Japanese-style andon lamps, turned bowls, and boxes. Farrington also has a popular YouTube channel, with more than 66,000 subscribers.
