I started wood working back in 1991. I started making wood ornaments for the lawn. Then one day i saw a man on TV woodturning. It was something I thought Id like to try. So I got a lathe and have been turning ever since. I am self taught although I did watch some tapes to try to learn. Some one brought me my first burl. I had no idea what to do with it. Then I had a dream of what it could look like after I turned it so thats what I did and the rest is history.I like to use burl wood in most of my pieces. And i only use native New England woods. You never know what nature has for a surprize inside. I like to leave that element in my pieces. Nature only grows one of a kind so every piece is very special. I also do custom work such as these amazing mailboxes that are custom made to your liking. Send me your idea and get a fantastic one of a kind mailbox that you will be proud to display or a bird house that looks like a 4 legged family...
