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.

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:

Do you know what makes a woodturner happy? Burls.  I was given several this summer so I have spent the fall turning them into unique bowls.  I was successful in using my bowl saver and created two wooden bowls that Mrs. Rotational Matters refers to as a "Statement Piece" and the "Son of".

With several craft shows and Christmas coming, I am replenishing my stock of European rolling pins, especially since someone bought six for Christmas presents!
