About

Love of working with wood, stone, and mixed media made manifest

I started wood working when I was in high school, but I always wanted to try the lathe. I never had a chance until I started taking classes later in life. I fell in love with wood turning and bought a lathe. Wood crafts started accumulating and I opened my shop on Etsy.

I have particularly been enjoying making my bottle stoppers. When I was a youth I used to dabble in jewelry making because I had a rock tumbler and wanted to use the stones. I liked jewelry and stones, and so I've incorporate them into my bottle stoppers. Some have jewelry findings, cabochons (stones or photo-cabs), buttons, metal work, and more.

I like not using a kit. My pens use a kit, but my bottle stoppers and rolling pins are all me.

Hope you enjoy my work.

    Wood Turner

    I am a craftsman at heart, so I take pride in taking the extra time and effort to make things as well as I can. I believe in quality & details - craftsmanship. I am not a production turner making things as fast and as cheaply as possible.
