I WAS FIRST INTRODUCED TO WOOD TURNING IN JANUARY 2011 AND STARTED TO BUILD OUT MY SHOP, BUYING TOOLS, WOOD AND WHAT EVER I NEEDED TO START TURNING.
WOOD TURNING CAME FAIRLY EASY FOR ME. I HAVE DONE A LOT OF CARPENTRY WORK AND REFINISHING WOOD FURNITURE IN THE PAST, SO IT WAS JUST A CASE OF LEARNING HOW TO USE WOOD TURNING TOOLS CORRECTLY, HOW THEY CUT AND TO GAIN MY CONFIDENCE.
I PRODUCE MANY ITEMS SUCH AS, PEPPER AND SALT MILLS, ICE CREAM SCOOPS, BOWLS, PLATTERS, GOBLETS, LIDDED BOXES, BUSINESS CARD HOLDERS, LIVE EDGE BOWLS, WINE STOPPERS, PENS.
IN ADDITION, I HAVE EXPANDED MY PRODUCT LINE TO INCLUDE CHARCUTERIE FOOD BOARDS AND MUCH MORE. I FEEL THAT THE PRESENTATION OF FOOD ON A LIVE EDGE CHARCUTERIE BOARD ENHANCES THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE OF FINE DINING. THESE BOARDS ARE MADE EXCLUSIVELY FROM SOURCED HARDWOODS SUCH AS MAPLE, CHERRY, WALNUT, ASH, BUTTERNUT ETC.
