Announcement My chosen form of expression is the wood lathe. I make things from wood, acrylic, antler, and golf balls to name a few. If it will fit on a lathe, I will try to make something out of it. Everything you see here as been made by me, by hand, one at a time and carefully finished so that it is a pleasure to touch and to hold.

I LOVE my shop!
I started turning on the lathe in about 2000 on weekends and evenings and since retirement, it has become a much larger part of my life. I now do craft shows and demonstrate around the southeastern US, and I am a past president of the Georgia Association of Woodturners. I will again be president as of January 1, 2014.
I spend all the time I can in my shop, designing and creating my work. It has been said that when turning, your hands will tell you when a piece is finished. Wood is a material like no other and it will tell you, through your hands, that it is what it is meant to be. Each time that happens, it is as if it were the first time and I am thankful that I am able to experience that moment again and again.

Owner, Maker, Designer
I was born in a very small town in South Dakota in the late 40's, received a BS from South Dakota State University. I have been an instructor pilot, salesman and retired as an IT manager in 2017.
My goal is to provide products of the finest quality and workmanship available.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Unless you specify otherwise, items will be shipped via the carrier with the lowest shipping cost. This is usually USPS. Items with "free shipping" will ship via this method. If you require other, more expensive, shipping methods the difference will be added to your total. Most items ship the next business day after purchase payment completion. This is typically one to three business days from the order date. If you have a specific carrier that you prefer, contact me and I should be able to accommodate you needs.
Custom orders typically take longer since I have to create the item and, in some cases, procure the raw materials.
PLEASE NOTE: If your item is lost, stolen or not delivered, I'll work with you to find a solution. If you want to purchase insurance you may do so by contacting me immediately after ordering. Some USPS shipping methods include a level of insurance. Contact me and we can discuss you specific order and needs in order to select a shipping method that meets your needs.
Customer is responsible for all duties, taxes and fees associated with international shipping and delivery.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you decide you don’t want an item, you may return it within seven (7) days for a full refund less shipping costs. The item must be returned in its original shipping container and packaging, in its original condition and arrive undamaged. If the item has been damaged or misused, I will not be able to issue a refund. Return shipping costs are your responsibility.
If the product you receive is not the one ordered, or if the item doesn’t operate properly, I will gladly pay return ground shipping and replace the item at no charge. Please note that I cannot be responsible if you ordered the wrong item. In that case, provided the correct item is still in stock, I will exchange the item with the one you intended to purchase, but both return shipping and re-shipment costs are your responsibility.
I will send images of any custom item to you prior to shipping so that you are assured that you are getting what you ordered. The item will only ship after you have approved the images. In the event that I should ship the wrong item, returns may be made per the section above. Otherwise, all sales on custom items are final.
