About David

David is a self taught wood turner and wood worker. David\'s passion for turning began early in his life. Through the years he was always drawn to the building and constructing side of things. His first lathe was purchased for him in the early 70\'s. Not until the mid 80\'s did David revive his passion for woodworking once again.

In the early part of 2008 David once again discovered the wood lathe. Since this time David has taught himself much of what he knows about wood turning. His primary turning started out with Pens and has grown into bowls and other turned items of art. David loves to turn all Domestic and Exotic woods with each one bringing him a new taste for each of mother natures treasures.

David also likes to experiment with the many new tools available and even some of his own home made tooling such as hollowing tools. Having a background in metal fabrication has made his tool making and design an easy transition into wood turning.

David also has his own website which can be accessed upon request.
