I was a sales professional that retired three years ago. Woodturning started as a hobby and has developed into a passion. I enjoy the process of sharing that passion through my work. I use locally harvested trees to make bowls, vases, and hollow forms on my lathe. I control the entire process and make each piece. I use various power tools and a floor standing lathe. Finishes are all food contact safe once they are completely cured. I also use an oil finish that is certified FDA consumable.
