“I’m retired from a 43+ year career as a telecommunications engineer. I’ve been a woodworker for most of my life. After building furniture for many years, I started woodturning in 2000. As it is with most woodworkers who attempt woodturning, I stopped building furniture and now exclusively turn wood. Most of the wood I turn is from the Atlanta area. This wood generally comes from trees downed in storms or from tree removals and would otherwise be headed to landfills or chippers. I also like to turn exotic woods and burls. No two pieces of wood are alike and it’s not until I start turning a piece when the wood reveals its hidden beauty. I turn many types of forms and objects including bowls, platters, hollow forms, goblets, boxes, pepper mills, wine bottle stoppers, pens, etc., but my main focus in on hollow forms. I also like to embellish my turnings by piercing, burning, coloring, carving, and texturing.

Lately, I’ve been focused on the “basket illusion” where a turned piece attempts to resemble woven basketry. I enjoy demonstrating at woodturning clubs and teaching.  All in all, I’m just having fun. I work in my studio located in the basement of my home in Dunwoody, GA. I’m an active member of the Georgia Association of Woodturners, Atlanta Woodturners Guild, and the American Association of Woodturners.”

In addition to Meyer’s affiliations above and his demonstrations in the states and the UK, his work has been shown in many exhibitions in Tennessee, North Carolina, Maryland and Minnesota.
