Started by Michael and Karyn Thornhill, Thornhill Handmade gives the two the opportunity to work alongside one another in crafting something unique time and time again. Michael’s love for cooking and Karyn’s for eating (tasting) make them the perfect pair to bring a variety of fresh and innovative food products to the marketplace. Michael also loves to “build things”. You never know what’s next but with Karyn’s watchful eye and continual input (heavy sigh from all the guys) each piece is sure to inspire. Karyn’s love for painting as well as her passion for turning something which has lost its sparkle into a treasure gives Michael plenty of opportunity to assist her in making frames, staining and building furniture and a myriad of other adventures.
What Makes Our Products Great?
