Hi, and thanks for dropping by my shop. Every item I sell is turned by me. "Woodturning" is the process of shaping pieces of wood on a lathe which rotates the wood at a very high speed. It is a process that includes carefully choosing (or sometimes simply finding) the "right" wood, shaping its initial form, fine-tuning the final form and finishing for the final appearance.
It is an interesting relationship with the wood. It speaks to me - and sometimes I speak to it. Woodturners say our craft is to show others what God has hidden behind the bark. Wood is a fascinating medium and a pleasure to work with. I've often thought artists say strange things, but this craft has taught me to "listen to the wood". When I listen, the result pleasant, satisfying and useful - many times beautiful.
All items are unique because they are hand made,…
