I’m a full time stay-at-home-dad to my three children. I have been turning wood in my “spare time” since 2002, using a woodturning lathe. Almost all of the wood I use is native to East Tennessee. I enjoy recycling these logs that would otherwise have gone to someone’s fireplace or the landfill.
I have taken classes at Arrowmont and the Kentucky School of Craft. I’m a member of the American Association of Woodturners and the Carolina Mountain Woodturners and have attended numerous demonstrations by professional turners. I concentrate on creating pleasing shapes with an eye on proportions. I love the symmetry and symbolism of circles. And working with wood reminds me that I am connected to this wonderful world God has made.
