Meet the Team

Montana Block is a small family owned business, based in Billings, MT. We pride ourselves on building functional, high-quality and unique wooden kitchen products, specializing in End-Grain Butcher Blocks.

Mitchell Martishius     Owner/Craftsman

Mitchell was born in Livingston, MT, moving a few times throughout his youth until he found his way back to Montana in the Summer of 2014. He has enjoyed woodworking from a young age, picking up invaluable skills from his father, who is also a craftsman. Mitchell enjoys all that Montana has to offer, rock climbing, mountaineering, kayaking, hunting and recently fishing with his two young daughters.


Brittany Martishius      Owner/Business Manager

Brittany and Mitchell met back in college and were married on the North Carolina Coast in September 2012. A civil engineer by day, a mom by night, and business manager of Montana Block on weekends and late evenings, doesn’t allow much free time but she enjoys exploring Montana with Mitchell and their two daughters and two dogs.



William (Billy) Bayer     Senior Craftsman

Billy has been behind the scenes for a few years now, always coming to the rescue when we throw up the bat signal. He officially joined the team November 1st, 2021 as Montana Block’s first full time employee. We couldn’t be happier for him to join our team!

Billy and Mitchell met back in 2016 and became fast friends. Billy enjoys hiking, camping, hunting and snowmobiling.
