Katherine B's Profile

About

Turning lots of wood and spinning lots of yarn.

I learned to turn wood from my father-in-law who is an amazing turner. I wasn't so sure about it at first, but the minute I put a lathe tool to the spindle, I was hooked!

I'm in the shop as often as I am able, turning whatever the wood tells me to turn. There are good days and bad days; days where I want to throw my tools down crying and days where I feel like a superhero. Heavy metal and surf music are essential to my turning.

I like coleslaw just fine, but will quickly forgo it if a mustard potato salad is an option.

I am a contributor to a collective shop called EloquentInspiration.
