George Wurtzel was featured in "Local Flavor" in Midwest Home's Kitchen Confidential.

"Minneapolis Furniture maker George Wurtzel made these stools from Minnesota oak. "
"Despite being blind for most of his adult life, Minneapolis furniture maker George Wurtzel has been creating made-to-order pieces since he launched his woodworking career at age 19. His rustic, strap-top bar stools are handmade from Minnesota red oak and leather. (Wurtzel also hand-turns wooden bowls, including the one beside the stove created from spalted Bigleaf maple—wood that's imbedded with unique patterns created by fungal growth.) "
