I have had a lifelong passion for wood working and received my first tools at a very young age.  I still have my Dremel jigsaw from around 8 years of age and it still works!  I've been a self-employed contractor since 1970.  I have reproduced many turnings for century old homes and still enjoy wood turning and making furniture and other household items in my spare time.  My turnings utilize species of domestic as well as exotic woods from managed and sustainable forests around the world.

When making bowls, the beauty and mystery hidden within a piece of wood is revealed.  The wood dictates what the bowl will be like.  All of my pieces are functional as well as aesthetic.  If you have any questions, are interested in purchasing, or simply share my passion for wood turning please reach me via email on our Contacts page.
