Furniture designer and builder, Michael Pate began his wood working experiences with his grandfather as a child. He has worked with top end furniture stores as well as extensively studying Early American Furniture and their craftsmen. The furniture of the settlers of Texas has been his focus for since 1976, with a true appreciation of the artisans who constructed it. He has also taught cabinet making and enjoys sharing the true beauty that wood has to offer.
Along with his wife Diana, they have a unique working partnership that allows ideas to flow and develop into the unique offerings of MDP Woodworks & Design. Diana's eye for color and interior design, and her love of nature and landscaping, brings a natural and fitting element to the pieces produced.
