about me

I was born in Ottawa, Canada's capital. Most of my professional life was spent as an auto and heavy-duty mechanic in western Canada.

I have been turning since 2000. I turn a little of everything, vases and bowls, pens and other spindle work, jewelry and toys. I always try, as much as possible, to use reclaimed lumber. Most of my pieces have some natural defect or blemish but these are often what gives character to an otherwise dull piece. No two pieces are alike or offer the same challenge.

If you are interested in woodturning or would like any other information about it, please drop me a line. Next to turning, nothing makes a woodturner happy as much as talking about woodturning!
