Michael & His
Cannons, Carriages and
other art pieces

Welcome and Thank You for your interest.
As an avid artillerist, I wanted display pieces in my
home, but was discouraged by the impracticality of high
cost and heavy weight of iron barrels.  My solution was
the wooden gun barrels that I now create and the
custom carriages to fit them.
Now a collector can have a very nice replica at a
fraction of the cost and weight of an iron barrel.
All pieces are "handcrafted" and detailed for museum
quality impression.  All my reproductions are created
from original Mordecai cannon carriage blueprints and
"Authentic with details to the period".

For the "Do it Yourselfer",
barrels are available without carriages or carriages are
custom built to fit your particular barrel.

My extensive background in custom home building and
remodeling adds another dimension to my skill level and
allows me to offer some other unique custom products
for your home that you can view in my gallery.

I am conveniently located in Cypress outside the city
limits of Houston, Texas.
Location- Houston, Texas
