Mike Bonin

New Iberia, LA

As a woodworker, my goal is to create functional, aesthetically pleasing items that can be used in the home for many years.

My name is Mike Bonin. I have been married to Joy Freyou Bonin for 36 years and we have three children, Breigh, Alex and Ian. Breigh is married to Brian Casanova and together they have given us 3 grandchildren, Daniel, Katherine, and Claire. I retired form the Iberia Parish School Board in 2013. I served as a Coach and Principal on the Middle School level for 32 years. I have been working with wood all of my adult life. I have created all types of furniture to both furnish my home and to sell. In the last several years I have created a line of wooden cooking utensils, cutting boards, rolling pins and cheese slicing boards. All of my products are hand made in my home shop in New Iberia, Louisiana.
