This is the most beautiful persimmon vase that I have seen. It has great golden brown color with wonderful black spalting. The epoxy finish really makes the colors stand out. Excellent craftmanship. The vase was delivered right away.

This is an exceptionlly beautiful Cryptomeria vase. It has wonderful grain pattern and great contrast between the heartwood and sapwood. The knotts give it real character. The craftmanship on this vase is excellent. The vase was delivered right away.

Absolutely beautiful. I did not expect the urn to look as good as it did in the picture, but the quality is even better. Thank you so much

What a beautiful grain pattern in this bowl. I love the golden brown sheen of the wood. Bowl was made very well with an excellent finish. Thank you!

A very beautiful Java Plum vase. It is the first Java plum vase that I have seen on the internet. It has a wonderful purple color. Java Plum is an invasive species in Florida. Good to see that quality bowls and vases can be made from it.
Why I Turn Wood
The real hook for me and wood turning was the first time I saw work by the Moulthrop family of Atlanta. I had no idea who they were or what they had done except the three hollow forms a friend had on display at his house. They were beautiful and I wanted to create something as beautiful on a lathe. Around Father's Day of 2013 I upgraded from my Grandfather's 1939 vintage lathe to a Jet Mini Lathe, bought a bowl gouge and never looked back!
The side yard at our home if full of logs of Norfolk Island Pine, Camphor, Cherry, Maple, Hack-berry, Rosewood, Pecan, Cadagi, Monkey Pod, Copper Pod, and a little Cuban Mahogany. All of the wood was collected with in 30 miles of my home in Tampa. All of the wood was also either headed to the dump or retrieved from the dump. It is a real rush for me to find out what is hiding under the bark. While I generally have a plan on what I am going to turn, may times that will change wen certain grain, knots, or other features of the wood are revealed as the layers come off.
It is a great joy to take something cast off and create something beautiful. I hope you agree and I would love to hear any comments you may have.
