Artistry in Wood
My work consists of original wood carvings and wood turnings for decorative and functional use. The vast majority of my work uses native Minnesota woods, often from storm-damaged trees or trees being removed from someone's property. I specialize in using food-safe finishes on all of my products.
I have been carving for over 35 years. Ten years ago this love of wood got me interested in turning. I enjoy both pursuits and find that they often complement each other. I have taught at a number of seminars and find that I always learn something from each student. There is certain zen that I get from working with wood and consider it a great way to turn 15 minutes into 3 hours.
