About

About Turner in the Woods

I'm a professional wood turner from Chesterland, Ohio. I'm drawn to the notion that a guy can still make things of value in this world and wood is my medium. I enjoy the interplay between the nature of the wood and the will of the artist; each one influencing the other. I do not do production work so each item is truly one of a kind. My pieces tend to be bowls and boxes (although around the holidays you'll find plenty of ornaments in my shop). In the future you'll see other things, like lamps, wine stoppers and furniture.

I have made a special effort to use reclaimed materials if at all possible. I tend to use hardwood cutoffs from a local sawmill in Chesterland, Ohio where I live. Sugar maple is one of my favorites as it is very hard, food safe, works well and can offer a nice variety of colors and grain patterns. Another favorite is black walnut; North America's darkest wood. I enjoy its complex mix of browns, black and even purple.

I hope you enjoy my turned pieces as much as I enjoyed making them.

Sincerely,

Robert Erb
The Turner in the Woods
