Charlie Little's Profile

About

I love turning rescued, reclaimed wood into vases, bowls, boxes, wooden candle holders and hollow form vessels.

My love of wood began when I was growing up in Pennsylvania. My father was a cabinet maker and when he had the time and resources, he would make little things for our home. I still have a few of his segmented wood turnings.

I also have a segmemted wooden lamp my grandfather made in the 30's. So, I guess I'm a 3rd generation woodworker!

I have built two homes, once when I was 40 and again when I was 62. I have made furniture, toys, jewelry boxes and vases. I love woodworking and I love to see others enjoy what I've made.

I now live in the desert of Southern Arizona, and can thankfully escape the heat in my workshop. But, whenever I hear…

I now live in the desert of Southern Arizona, and can thankfully escape the heat in my workshop. But, whenever I hear the noise of a chainsaw in my neighborhood, I hop in my truck and follow the sound.

Along with rescuing wood that is going to the dump or to the wood pile, and then using it to make beautiful things, I usually get to make a new friend. Its a great way to meet people!

Whenever anyone in my family is driving in town, they are on the lookout for landscapers who are trimming or cutting down trees. It's amazing the number of tree species people have planted in this desert city. I also find dead and down Ponderosa Pine, Oak and Alligator Bark Juniper when I'm in the mountains of Northern Arizona.

My daughter. Lalita, has joined me here at CharlieLittleOnLine. She is learning to turn wood and you will be seeing some of her turnings. I have also given her the job of running this shop because, frankly, I want more time in the workshop and she is better at the computer.

Thanks for visiting our store and I hope you like what you see. Come back soon!.

Your host, Charlie
