    Instructor Bio

    I have been wood turning for about 30 years. I love to take a piece of a tree and open it up to see what is inside and just what it is meant to be: a bowl, some kind of hollow form, a vase. My true passion is teaching, to see the joy in a student as they discover the joy of woodturning.
