Learned some woodturning in High School, and never took it any futher. Have always had a wood shop and built things from furniture to decks, including a complete remodel of a home. Took several woodworking classes at Mark Adams and, as a requirement for the Masters program, you had to take a woodturning class. I decided to do a class with Michael Hosaluk in 2004. THat was all it took…. Joined Woodturners of Southwest Florida in Ft. Myers, which was a great club with very friendly members and mentored under one of their best turners. Became an officer and started doing demonstrations. Participated in several judged shows in FT. Myers and won Best of Show three times. Decided to form a club closer to home and, with four others, founded Peace River Woodturners and became an officer and demonstrator. Great club that continues to thrive. Retired and decided to move back to Georgia. Joined the Apple Ridge Woodturners and became an officer and demonstrator. Great group. Due to aging and eyesight, decided to form another club in Canton close to home. Specialties include segmenting, hollow forms, piercing, airbrushing and household items.
Enjoy demonstrating, tutoring, and the comaraderie
