About JBWoodTurn

Sales 1,088
On Etsy since 2010

I am a retired shop teacher with a passion for designing, creating, and hand crafting useful household products.

When my wife Ona and I first moved to Sunriver, Oregon in 2000, we did not intend on living there full time. Our intension was to rent the home and travel in one of the motor homes my wife had through her motor home rental business. We did just that for about 6 years and then decided to move permanently to the Sunriver.

I told her that when I retired I would get a wood lathe and rekindle my love of wood turning. I was not sure what I would turn on the lathe, but I had plenty of time to think. When we moved in as full time residents there was no workshop, only a car port.

Since residing full time, except for some vacations, we have completely remolded our home. Most importantly though, the conversion of our carport to a one car garage which also serves as my workshop with my Powermatic 2020 lathe!

I now turn my wooden bowls starting with a segmented octagon pattern that allows me to save exotic wood, cut down on waste and still create beautiful artisan bowls. I have also created a lathe tool that greatly helps in the turning process. Both my bowls and lathe tool can be found in my Etsy shop.

Lately I have been focusing on my magnetic knife racks. They are a slim knife block that can stick to your refrigerator, a metallic metal door or even non magnetic surfaces (with the use of our special double-sided mounting tape that doesn’t peel paint or finishes). These knife racks can replace your countertop knife block or clean up a messy knife drawer. They are also made by hand with beautiful materials that look great in any kitchen.

Overall, my goal is to design, create and hand craft useful household products. Whether I’m turning a bowl out of exotic wood, or assembling a handmade knife rack that better organizes your kitchen, it sure is fun to pursue my passion.

Thank you for your interest in my hobby.
