Cowboy at Heart
Inspired by the history of the Old West and the cowboy way of life, artisan Mike Roths of Bear Paw Designs has been designing and building fine Western furniture since 1979. With so many years of woodworking experience behind him, Roths is quick to point out that the success of Bear Paw is due to God’s blessings. Hardwoods, leather, and hand-forged iron define Roths award-winning style, but do not limit his creative designs. Roths has also been know to work with antlers, fishing lures, paintings, and lights.
Bear Paw Designs is located in the scenic Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana, where Mike and his wife Jo live. They have two grown daughters.
