I love the beauty of wood and wish to share it with you......

In Sept. 2011 I had a mild stroke that had stopped me from turning for about a year but now I believe that I am able to return to the lathe.

From the craftsman.
As a teenager I learned some wood turning at my fathers lathe in the farmhouse basement. Now, at age 76, I am again doing wood turning. One of my sons gave me a lathe for Christmas several years ago. I started turning by making candle sticks and then progressed into bowls, etc.

I worked in the production management area of the paper industry most of my life. My last five working years were spent with a company that used considerable 12/4 (3” thick planks) of hard maple to make cant-hook handles and I used the cut-offs for my early turnings. And thus Sugar Maple Turnings became the name of my company. Sugar maple is generally considered hard maple, although all maples and even box-elder are use for sugaring.

I have expanded to getting wood from other sources much of which was destined for firewood.

I generally do not work from a plan but let the wood lead me into a design. Most designs are one of a kind. It is enjoyable to watch the patterns of the wood grain develop as the tool removes chips. Then sanding and finishing making that grain stand out.

The sharing of the wood’s beauty with others can be nearly as enjoyable as making the item. It has been six years that I have been showing and selling items at art & craft shows in eastern Wisconsin..
