Woodworking and particularly wood turning have been my passion for over forty years.  I especially like to work with native woods of Montana.  Being trained as an industrial arts instructor has given me a wonderful appreciation for the beauty of different woods.  After retiring from the Montana State University Extension Service a number of years ago, I have been able to devote more time to my avocation of wood turning.

I find it thrilling to work with an aspen tree that a beaver has fallen.  The beaver has even removed the bark for me to speed up the drying process. Making a bowl or vase from a tree removed from a friend’s yard and then giving that turning to the friend also is very satisfying.
