About the Artist
I tend to see the wood lathe as a means to an end, or part of the whole. I still find an occasional piece that begs to be left alone or turned and I think that will always have a place in the woodturning world. I feel that wood is like people, it comes in all different shapes, sizes, and personalities and you never know what you are going to experience until you get inside and start to discover the true relationship that you have with the piece that you are turning.
