Here's My Woodturning!

I started out as a traditional flat board woodworker building chairs, cradles, rocking horses and other projects.

When I attend a craft fair and saw a woodturning demonstration I was hooked and woodturning became my passion. The first projects were simple - pens, bottle stoppers and simple platters and bowls. I am inspired by projects that are functional in everyday life. Bowls and platters that have an organic feel but are usable in everyday life are what appeal to me the most.

I was fortunate to be able to take a class with JoHannes Michelsen and learned to turn wooden hats and have that as a "bucket list" accomplishment. My ambition is to be able to include more color and design in my future work.

I am a member of the Tennessee Association of Woodturners, the Duck River Woodturning Club, the Mid-South Woodturners Guild and the Tennessee Association of Craft Artists.
