Reginald and Sheila's Profile
Thank you for visiting my shop. My wife takes care of the website, shipping and paperwork, and I get the fun part of making a whole lot of sawdust.
I began working with wood making furniture and toys when the grandkids came along. About ten years ago, I started woodturning after going to a woodturning show in North Carolina and have been hooked ever since. Most of the wood I turn is from firewood, local trees that have died or were damaged by a storm.
Woodturning is a creative outlet for me after working all week in Bridge Construction. I can’t wait to pick up a piece of wood and see what the end result will be. The grain, knots, cracks and splitting all determine what will emerge.
Most of the bowls and plates are oiled, waxed and buffed making them safe to be used for food. Vases, boxes and decorative items may have several coats of lacquer to get a high sheen. I use a variety of finishes...
