I started woodworking as a creative outlet about
20 years ago. I've done a bit of furniture making, and have dabbled
in other hobbies like stained glass and pottery...but always come
back to woodturning because it's so enjoyable.
Over the years I have come to specialize in
ornamental and segmented woodturning. Ornamental turning is the
process of taking a plain turned object and using a specialized
“ornamental turning lathe” to add decorative effects to the turning.
Segmented turning is the process of using multiple pieces of wood,
hundreds in many cases, to build a object. In segmented turning,
most of the work is done off the lathe, with object only taking
shape on the lathe in the final stages of the process.
