I taught at New Mexico State University for 28 years, retired in 2016, and took up woodturning about 2 years later. I was a self-taught, solitary turner for 3 or 4 years, then joined Arizona Woodturners Assoc, where I got some instruction from experienced old pro’s and exposure to some amazing turnings.

I have been playing in sawdust as long as I can remember.  My dad had a basement shop when I was a toddler before he started his own custom cabinet business which was located next to our home in Wisconsin.  As such, I was always in his company shop and had weekly chores to help […]

I retired and sold my Optometry practice in 2016. This gave me more time to stay in the shop. I honestly do not know how I had time to get any woodworking done while I was working. I never have enough time now. After retiring and moving to central Texas from Houston, I had an […]
