Mr. Mike’s Workshop

Featuring original, handcrafted creations by Mr. Mike

Mr. Mike is a familiar face here at Carson Creek School. He maintains the landscape, garden, playground and school house. One of his favorite things to do is create new and practical things out of recycled materials. Of course, that means no two items are ever exactly alike. Following is a sampling of what Mr. Mike has created or can custom make for you.

Children’s Outdoor Mud Kitchen

Your kids and their friends will enjoy hours of ‘cooking up’ their own endless creations like mud pies and muffins, or leaf and stone soups… exercising their creativity, while benefiting from hours outdoors in nature instead of indoors glued to their devices.
Each mud kitchen is made from recycled, re-configured hardwood pallets (that are protected from ground contact with treated lumber), a recycled stainless steel sink that has been re-plumbed to easily connect to a garden hose for cold running water along with several shelves to hold pots, pans and cooking utensils.

Each mud kitchen is approximately 4’ W x 4’ H with a counter top about 18-20” high. A basic unit like the one shown starts at $395.00 providing years of creativity and outdoor entertainment for kids of all ages and their friends.

Hand Made Furnishings

Here is a sampling of custom designed furnishings Mr. Mike has made for Carson Creek School and for others.


Enjoy these handmade photo stands to perfectly highlight your latest favorite photos. 4”x6” and 5”x7” photos may be displayed in horizontal or vertical stands that accentuate the beauty of the photo…not the frame. Because of the simplicity of the design you can swap out new photos for old ones, instantly, without struggling with a picture frame. Prices starting at $4.95 each.
