Each box was handcrafted by Scott Armstrong, and the unique panels were designed and brilliantly executed by our individual artisans. The creativity of each box is representative of 30 years of Western Functional Art. Join us in our mission by purchasing one of these commemorative keepsakes! Your generosity will allow By Western Hands to continue with our preservation of western heritage and design through the celebration of past and present artisans.
Inspired by the history of the Old West, Mike designs and builds furniture that reflects the lifestyle of the working cowboy. With his love of art, Mike enjoys creating one of a kind pieces that often take on a whimsical look and almost always tell a story of the past. I sometimes use vintage items such as Winchester ammunition boxes, fishing lures, etc. in my pieces. It is a great way to preserve such items and the history that goes along with it. Mike’s clients get the connection and can relate to its story. Mortise and tenon joinery, along with dovetails, are a common construction method used in his pieces. His award winning designs combine different wood species to give his work a unique and subtly warm feel. Mike, along with his high school sweetheart Jo, live in the heart of the Bitterroot Valley near historic Stevensville, MT. They have two daughters and four (going on 5!) grandchildren.
