Creating beautiful wood treasures.

I began turning in 2005. A friend, and my neighbor at the time, became interested in turning through another friend at work. We bought a mini lathe together and began experimenting in his garage. Eventually we each bought lathes. While my friend turned his focus to furniture I have worked on developing my craft.

Most of the wood I obtain for turning comes from within my hometown of Waynesboro. I am always keeping an eye out for trees being taken down in the neighborhood, in the local parks or cemetery or even left in the landfill. My family and many friends have found beautiful wood for me. Several neighbors have generously given me maple, pecan, apple, cherry, pear, and pink sycamore. Usually I can trade a finished bowl for some large pieces of wood. I turn their wood gifts into a vessel or bowl and give them a treasured memory.

Most of the trees in our yards we have memories of tire swings, children climbing, or planting them in honor of a momentous occasion. While salvaging the wood from a landfill I like to think I have encompassed those memories into a beautiful work of art. People can look at a piece from a special tree, remember and tell the stories associated with it.

Additional photos of each item are on my website. Follow the link on this page to view these photos and read more about my work and business.

I am married and a father of two boys. My wife Pamela Andes Bowman is my shop manager and has a jewelry shop here on Etsy as well. It is Andes Jewelry. Both her jewelry business and Tree Street Turnings are run under our parent business, Riverfront Studios, LLC.

    I enjoy bringing the beauty of wood out through the shape and line of the vessels I turn. Hopefully I have created something that will outlast my lifetime and many lifetimes.
