I find that creating segmented wood objects involves more science, technology, engineering, artistry, and math (STEAM) than 20-odd years as a Bell Labs systems engineer. Exchanging ideas with- and learning from the smart and funny members of Segmented Woodturners is a real pleasure. Growing up in Royal Oak, Michigan, I played with electricity, chemicals, motors, […]

My woodturning experience started quite by accident. One of my grandsons (Mike) wanted to build a fishing rod so I did some research on the subject and bought the necessary parts, supplies and equipment and off we went. A problem arose when it came to the handle as we didn’t have any way to  “form” it […]

Leaving graduate school in the early 1970’s, I envied friends who had a cabinet shop.  It resonated deep with me, that at the end of the day there was something  created  that did not exist before. After a short internship as a carpenters apprentice I was able to be trained by the State of Michigan […]

I am not a segmenter. It’s true, I haven’t made a single segmented piece yet, so I can’t claim that title. But in my […]

Then renovation after renovation followed for 20 years and numerous houses, mostly structural and installation work. Finally, all the […]

Hi all, here is my short story…  After a long career in ski area management at Heavenly Ski Resort, I transitioned to a semi-successful second career as a full-time segmented woodturning artist.  But it didn’t happen overnight.  It actually started about 66 years ago in my granddad’s woodshop in northern New Hampshire; I was fortunate […]

My interest in woodworking started in high school where we had no power tools, not even handheld ones. I made a record album cabinet with sliding doors for my parents in my senior year with all hand tools. The shop “teacher” was a great artist who could draw as well as anyone I know but […]

Woodworking: Started in the mid 1980s. All flat work ie: furniture, boxes, humidors, etc. In 1999 read an article on Ray Allen. There was a photo of Ray sitting inside a huge, segmented bowl on the lathe. I had to try this. I had some experience with metal lathe work so it wasn’t a large […]

I started woodworking in High School where I turned my first bowl in shop class.  I have always had an interest in working with wood.   During my working life, I didn’t have much time to pursue my hobby but on occasion, I was able to do some home remodeling which kept my skills honed in […]
