Paul Morrison | Founder & Owner
Paul founded The Wood Cycle in 2001 after discovering his hobby was just as rewarding whether the end product would be enjoyed by himself or by others. Paul's woodworking skills are primarily self-taught, but was heavily inspired by several artists and craftsmen in his family; especially by his grandfather, a cabinet maker. After first exhibiting work in his teens, Paul was trained in engineering and spent 20 years addressing environmental policy before deciding to pursue his passion as his profession.
