I like to turn bowls and make furniture out of slabs of wood. Here is a sampling of my work. Look for more and better quality pictures in the future!




This vase is turned from an almond branch. 17.5" tall, 6" diameter. Amazing spiral grain, nice starburst pattern if you cut across the endgrain. The sawdust was orange.

More new work here. Below you will find old work.



This was my first "perfect" hollow vessel (according to me). Quite a gem, no?
