I have been a casual woodworker most of my adult life. Then, after attending a week-long woodturning workshop at Snow Farm led by Rick Angus, I was hooked! I actually decided to retire early and enrolled in Beth Ireland’s 8‑week intensive turning program at the Center for Furniture Craftmanship. By January 2021 I felt that my work was refined enough to start selling at craft fairs and farmers markets around Boston. In 2023 my wife retired and we moved to New Jersey. Now I have my workshop set-up again, (above ground this time!). I have applied to several craft festivals and events here and and am continuing my participation in craft programs at Peters Valley and Snow Farm. I look forward to expanding my studies at other venues and especially to develop ideas I have for more artistic and functional turned pieces, including furniture.
