Wood turning is the craft of using the wood lathe with hand held tools to cut a shape that is symmetrical around the axis of rotation. The application of faceplate and spindle turning techniques using maple, walnut, red oak, and exotic woods results in intricate shapes and designs that highlight the natural color and the beautifully grained patterns of the wood. With these turning techniques, I create usable art such as bark-edged bowls, vessels, sculptural forms, and pepper mills. The combination of the beauty of the wood grain with the strength of the finished piece provides great personal satisfaction.
