Rotational Matters

Wood Turning

Custom wood turning of small bowls (or boxes) and spindle based implements like Dibbers and Muddlers.  I generally use local Maritime Canadian woods, but have been known to experiment with Australian wood when available.

2022 Events for Rotational Matters

Thank you very much for the support you gave me at the craft shows I  attended last fall.  I am in the workshop most days, working my way through the blanks from last year, and creating new blanks from the wood that piled up during the fall.  See my Facebook and Instagram pages for new pieces and news.  I do not have any more craft shows scheduled but you can still buy the works displayed on my Works for Sale page (pricing does not include shipping); contact me at [email protected] 

Stay Safe, Get Vaccinated, Keep Masking, Be Kind.

Many people are curious about the process of woodturning.  Please enjoy the video I did about how I made a beech bowl.

News from the Shop:

10 Jan 2022

​In December I found some bags of hardwood kindling at the grocery store - it looked like a dark oak - in fact it turned out to be some sort of "toasted" oak.  If you have ever made home-made red wine you will recognize the term (and smell).  So I have been playing a bit with what might be made from it.  

I also got some new tools for Christmas, so have been spending some time learning how to use them.  There is always something new in the shop!

I recently made a couple of sets of chop sticks for my daughter, not a very efficient use of time, as it takes a lot of work to turn items that thin and long.  But I was reasonably happy with them, and used some of that oak for some of them.

In the meantime, I have been also working through some of the blanks from last spring, and trying to process some of the raw wood that has built up in the garage.
