Wood is such a lovely material to work with, whether finished smooth , carved , painted, charred or otherwise manipulated it never ceases to be a wonder to me. I have earned my living from trees in one form or another, but I feel turning and sculpting is the form of woodworking closest to the essence of tree I've found so far.

I'm self taught , with the exception of wood shop classes in high school where I learned basic tool use. Without inspiration and teenage pre-occupation with other things I didn't think about woodworking until sometime in my twenties, when I began to acquire tools, interest and practical needs.
