Gentle to the touch, exquisite to contemplate, tractable in creative hands, stronger by weight than iron, wood [is], as William Penn had said, ‘a substance with a soul.’…

One of the remarkable things about wood is its self-expression. Whether as the handle of a tool, as a dead stump, or alive in a forest where every branch is a record of the winds that blew, it is always telling something about itself. This is why man has an affinity with wood not only as a mere material, but also as a kindred spirit to live with and to know.

–Eric Sloane, A Reverence for Wood.

Welcome to the virtual home of my woodturning endeavors! I hope you’ll spend a little time here exploring the gallery rooms as I share with you the treasures I have found in wood.
