Lots of new work available
I've just listed a lot of new turnings and bowls on Etsy this past week and have more to put on soon. Click on any photo below to be taken directly to my Pattern by Etsy site. There you can see everything I have available right now.
So, here it is nearly June and I haven't updated things since March. My bad. It's not that I haven't been doing anything, it's that I've been VERY BUSY! I'm making new work and getting some commissioned work, plus I've been working ON the shop nearly as much as I've been working IN the shop. I now have a new place for my 12" miter saw and it's working out great. Here's a photo:
Here's another announcement. I've been accepted into the Summer Artists' Market! I'll have over 40 pieces there to choose from. The dates are June 4 & 5. There will be several artists there showing and selling all manner of amazing things, not to mention the wonderful home furnishings and accessories that they always have at their exciting store. They're located on 14 Mile Road in Clawson. Here's a link to the Artists' Market page on their site:
Hope you can stop by and visit.
A New Video!!!
Yes, I'm bad. It's been like, forever, since I've made a new video. But I'm getting back into them and this latest one is on the topic of my new brush holders. If you'd like to see what goes into making them you can go to the link above for My YouTube Videos, or simply click on the photo of the setup for drilling the holes in the brush holder below.
I really do make them!
I wanted to show you that I do indeed make the ferrules I sell for tool handles. Here's a photo of one being finished trimmed on my lathe. After cleaning up the saw cut marks and trimming to length the outside and inside edges are also deburred on the lathe. This process takes time but produces a clean and beautiful ferrule ready for your custom handle.
I can now take credit cards directly. If you come out and decide to purchase a piece we can process everything on your credit card. _________________________________________________

"Wood is one of the most expressive fundamental elements on earth. Once part of a living organism, it still expresses the echoes of that life captured within its fibers. This is the "voice" of the material. Engineering is the "voice" that humankind uses to express itself with works of visual and functional presence. My work combines both voices to create a harmony of natural and man-made beauty"
