About MichaelVermeij

Sales 325
On Etsy since 2015

A little background story....My life as a woodworker did not start with my grandfather giving me my first chainsaw for my 1st birthday…neither did I finish my first fruit bowl by the age of 4 in a rustic work shed. Instead, I’ve actually had a few very interesting safaris before. I was a cab driver, a chef, I’ve worked in a monkey conservation park and was contracted as a travel guide.

In my twenties, I’ve travelled a lot… Escaping from my cosy but overcrowded home country, The Netherlands, and like many travellers; in search of ‘something’. During one of those journeys in Australia, I lent a hand to a guesthouse owner constructing his tree-trunk bed and found from that day on my ‘something’! Working with wood…

I love the calm of working with this organic material. It reveals new aspects with every project… new characters, wood grains, fragrances and the demand for new skills. It is an intense & serene process… seeing a raw piece of wood transforming into my own ideas. Inspirations are never far in this beautiful environment …I’m living in France with my lovely wife on a hilltop, overlooking the stunning Pyrenees mountain range.

Have a great day!

Congratulations! Today, you've bought a truly unique and handmade little slice of happiness. You can be very positive about the fact that I've spend a lot of time, pleasure and dedication on this product. Therefore, it deserves a correct & reliable sending.
Below you can read how the item will find its way to your homestead;

Step 1
After I received your payment, the item will be made ready for sending within 1 business day. I will ship your order to the address provided by the Etsy checkout unless specified otherwise. For your own good, please double check if you did provide the right & full address unless you wish your purchase to have a long round-the-world-trip.

When the item is ready to leave my workshop after kissing goodbye, I will send you through email the track & trace number in order to follow your priority package. All items shipped are of course packed with care and protected by the therefore suitable materials and products.

As soon as the mailman arrives with your long-expected item, please, show kind politeness by not literally throw yourself across his delivery truck, snatching your package out of his trunk and run off with it. She or he needs your signature to confirm me that you received your package in good order.

Please check the approximate delivery times:
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the transit indications described below are not accurate at this time. As you will understand, the current transit time is considerably longer and therefore, I appreciate your patience. However, if you did not receive your item within 2 months, a full refund will be given.
2-5 Business days within France
6-10 Business days within the European Union
10-21 Business days To Australia/New-Zealand & Asia, Canada/USA & South-Africa.

It’s good to bear in mind that exceptions do occur due to strikes, flat tires, roadblocks, fallen trees, doing private shoppings during work shift, lost keys, cancelled weddings and overzealous custom officials. As you will understand, therefore I cannot be held responsible.
