Sustainability ingrained at local woodworking business

Paul Morrison might not have launched the sustainability movement but 15 years ago he founded a business that was custom-made for it.

Morrison runs The Wood Cycle of Wisconsin, a small custom woodworking shop that takes a somewhat unique approach to natural recycling.

In most cases Morrison and his staff of six full-time craftsmen will take a tree that had long been a family friend and transform it into a warm and inviting piece of furniture or cabinetry for that very same family (and in some cases, a business).
