Retired for 4 years and unable to find an interesting past-time, my husband suggested we go to the Bell Woodturner’s open house and see what they did. Intrigued by the amazing art works and other items produced by a machine that goes round and round and sharp tool, we decided to try our hands at turning wood into practical and artistic items.

Starting with a used lathe and a box of inexpensive tools , we were hooked after our first bowl. Today I “turn” for my enjoyment and take pleasure in the fact that there are always new skills to explore in this craft and I am never bored exploring the inner beauty of trees.
