Lathe turned art and functional work.

I will be at the Monterey, VA high school gym on Mar. 18 and 19, 2017 for the Highland Co. Maple Festival

I started to turn wood in 2010. At first it was a curiosity and developed into a passion. I can not explain the thrill of taking a piece of wood that has no apparent attributes, mounting it on a lathe and finding the true beauty of the interior. Many times it is astounding as to the awe that one can find inside a nondescript ‘chunk’ of wood.

Many of the finished pieces may be completed in a matter of a few hours. Many others take days to complete. There are also the pieces that no matter how hard I try they just are not worth completing. That is the nature of wood.

On our farm my wife and I own and operate a Bed and Breakfast - CLEAR SPRING HOMESTEAD. I also raise approximately a half a million chickens a year. Needless to say we keep a busy schedule.
