About the artist
Experienced and knowledgeable about a wide variety of resurfacing and coating techniques for counters, floors, walls, and cabinets—Mike Burns enjoys working with wood the most. He fell in love with the beauty of incorporating wood grains and textures with the high shine of varnishes and specialty epoxy finishes.
A skilled tradesman who has spent his time continuously learning about new methods and products related to his field, Mike has been happily able to combine his love of his surface refinishing work with his love of the natural look of wood.
Mike’s ability to take what was once considered “dated” into the modern age – using his refinishing expertise via his company, Crystal Shine Refinishing – he has garnered the attention of homeowners and property management companies across the country. Saving his clients time and money while preserving reusable fixtures, he does so with a nod to conservation.
Transforming and customizing wood surfaces of any kind is a quiet and artful process. The design options are virtually endless as Mike creates his own one-of-a-kind pieces as well as individual pieces customized to what his client desires. He works closely with each customer to understand their vision in order to produce a beautiful and unique product.
Whether giving a stunning wood grain a high shine, or using epoxy resins of the highest quality—even the color pigments are carefully chosen and customized for each work of art.
Crystal Shine Custom Woodworks by Mike Burns is located in Crystal River, Florida. The workshop is a buzzing haven of work and creativity.
