Video summary: Shavings flying while roughing-out a large bowl.

I turn wood into cool stuff.

FYI: Followers, I'm in the process of rebuilding my shop with plans to move in early next year. In the meantime, a few pieces are forthcoming for the Christmas season.

My works are inspired by life’s simplicity, its patterns, and the beauty and form of God’s creation. Wood is a perfect medium that gives and takes with beauty in its perfect grain or simple defects. Some my favorite woods are those where the tree has been crushed by the forces of nature, or diseased wood that the tree is fighting to cure. These result in highly figured wood that provides amazing colors, patterns and swirls.

Turnings are created from a single block of wood reclaimed from construction sites, tree cutters, neighbors, and friends. My children have affectionately named my shop The Pop Shop. This cramped, dimly lit building is where I spend my off-work hours scheming on the next masterpiece. Each work is unique. The variety of turnings include: large rustic bowls, rimmed bowls, stacking boxes, lidded boxes, platters, twig pots, pendants, and various other child friendly pieces.
