Aaron's passion for woodworking began when he enrolled in a high school wood shop class to fulfill a graduation requirement. Starting with a very limited understanding of basic tools, to excelling in creating custom furniture, to being asked to student teach, it was evident that Aaron had natural abilities in the field of woodworking. Upon graduating, he was awarded outstanding performance in cabinetmaking by the school district's industrial education council.
Aaron gained valuable experience through various apprenticeships with a few local woodworkers in Los Angeles and began to develop his own style through creating custom built-in furniture, kitchens, bathrooms, fireplace mantels, architectural mill work, and many other projects. During those apprenticeships, he attended Los Angeles Trade-Technical College, a two-year program that emphasized cabinetmaking and mill work. Due to the demands of client projects, he made the decision to graduate a semester early, obtained a California contractor's license and officially opened Fine Finish Interiors.
Mike learned and refined his skills working at his family's furniture company, The John Logvy Company in San Francisco.. There they specialized in creating antique reproduction furniture for the design trade. After graduating from college, he went to work full time at the family business. In 2005 he decided to venture out on his own and started Mike Davoren Cabinetry. On a lark, he also started selling children s furniture on the side as Bad Apple Furniture. He designed a toy box and stackable drawer system inspired by the iconic Lego block. He was politely requested by the big toy company's law firm to stop selling them, which he did. He still gets calls about the Kirby Block to this day.
In 2013, Mike and Aaron met through a mutual friend. Aaron had relocated to the bay area establishing work with new clients and Mike was looking for help at his existing shop. Aaron was far too overqualified to be hired as a cabinetmaker, so they decided to combine forces and Davoren Larson was born.
