Roger Smith's Profile
My name is Roger Smith and I am a retired computer scientist. I have been woodworking for several years. The last 5 years I have focused on wood turning. Ninety percent of my wood is salvaged from the curbs and local landfills in Cullman, AL.
Though I turn a lot of different items, my main focus is on hollow forms (vases) and wing edged platters. I try to incorporate the natural edges and voids left by nature in my work. I have a Vega 2600 bowl lathe and can manage up to a 26 inch bowl or platters.
A large part of my life has been spent hunting, fishing and photography in the outdoors. Currently my wife and I spend a large part of our life each spring and summer following our grandson who is now on scholarship at Northwest Shoals CC in Muscle Shoals, AL to play baseball.
