Jackie Jackson's Profile
Each piece is a labor of love for woodturner, Jackie Jackson of Brewton, Alabama.
This wonderful hobby was born 8 years ago when his wife Jody surprised him with a wood lathe for Christmas. Although tickled pink to get a new tool for his shop,he said"Honey, what am I supposed to do with it?" She laughed and told him to go to the shop and figure it out...that he did !
Since then, he spends most of his waking hours,designing, cutting and doing the glue-ups and then...YES, the turning! He is like a little kid at christmas when he puts it on the lathe and first touches that clunky chunk of wood with a chisel. These pieces are our Babies and when it comes time for delivery, I,(his wife Jody) gets to catch the new baby. It's always a trill to hold it for the first time.
These works of art are truely his passion...thus the name.
Feel free to contact Jackie for questions and info...
