Woodworking has always been a part of my life, but what else would you expect from a Carpenter? I was a homebuilder for 30 years and built furniture and sculpted in wood in my spare time. Since 1999, my passion has been turning wood. With a creative eye and an ever-expanding knowledge of wood, I am always watching for that special piece of a tree that can become a unique turning or piece of art. My goal is to expose the natural beauty of the wood in a pleasant shape that when finished will stimulate both the senses of sight and feel.
