Discovering different techiques is part of my passion for craftsmanship. My wood-turning journey began with a second-hand lathe and the curiosity to shape wood a different way. 

Whether using figured walnut, spalted maple or an exotic African hardwood, this organic art holds as many possibilities as imagination itself. 

Pricing begins around $40. 

About the Craftsman
My interest in woodworking and furniture-making began in my dad's basement shop.  From there, I had summer jobs that gravitated towards wood. Home renovation, deck-building and tree planting.

From that inauspicious beginning, I spent years toiling as a marketing creative before I turned my attention full-time to woodworking. Now, I work out of my dedicated workshop located in an out-building on our property in St. Catharines, Ontario.

When I'm not designing a new piece, I'm out in the community meeting amazing people at craft shows like The Handmade Market, In The Soil Festival, Artfest Craft Show and many more.
