I have been turning wood for "a score, and more". Doing business as "The Lathe-meister", I market my work in various Art & Craft Shows throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and in local specialty shops. My work has been displayed in several galleries. I also dabble in many other interests, but we can delve into those later another time.

A Little Background

Several years ago I’d never have dreamed being busy with an income-producing craft/art hobby. That was when I was adding ‘lathe’ to the end of my Christmas list (our family traditionally makes lists for each other – it saves the aggravation of shopping, of which many men suffer). One year I wasn’t predisposed towards making such a list. So, I just put down ‘lathe’. Of all things, my wife bought me one! At the time I viewed it as a ‘fun’ machine, on which to make some whimsical things. Had I known my future involvement with this fascinating tool, I’d have bought myself one years earlier.

For the under-initiated, a lathe is an instrument to which you can attach a piece of wood and give it a whirl. Belt driven by a motor, it causes the wood to spin wildly. In fact, that’s part of the initiation process. In short order, one learns to appreciate rapid spinning, much more than wild spinning. By applying a sharp tool to the wood, while it is rapidly spinning, usually anywhere from a couple hundred rpm to 3-4,000 rpm, the wood can be shaped into myriad designs.
