When Delamar developers purchased a former Holiday Inn property on West Grand Traverse Bay, they wanted to create a beautiful, high-end destination on the shores of West Bay in Traverse City, Michigan.  In the process a dying willow tree, which was planted by the original property owners, was taken down. 


The Derlatka family was looking for a special piece to showcase their new home and came to Magnum Lignum for help.  As we walked through our wood barn, the found a large piece of black walnut root which became the perfect coffee table in their new living room.

When the Dominican Sisters of Saint Cecilia of Nashville, Tennessee sent four sisters to teach in the Grand Traverse Catholic Schools system, Magnum Lignum was asked to create a number of pieces for the convent chapel.  The convent is named Our Lady of the Lake Convent. 


Mari Vineyards founder Marty Lagina made the (some would say) crazy choice to grow grapes that shouldn't grow in Michigan, with the belief that he could produce world class wines that otherwise couldn't be made here. So, true to his Italian heritage, he planted exotic varieties like Nebbiolo, Sangiovese and others.


After working with Magnum Lignum as the project manager for the Grand Traverse Area Catholic Schools projects, Eric Mulvany commissioned Magnum Lignum to create three tables for his home.  Two tables were spectacular book matched maple burl end tables, and the third table was crafted from a highly figured, uniquely shaped beech disk. 


One of the more interesting things about working for Marty is the occasional project that he drops off.  An early example of this started on the day that he brought a chunk of a walnut tree root into the shop.  The piece measured about 16” on each side.  His question was “Do you think that you can make this pieces balance on one corner, and spin like a globe?”
