While working in Australia in 2000 I took a weekend course in wood turning with a friend. That was all it took and I was hooked. For the first few years I mostly made pencil holders and experimented while I learned what not to do. However, there was a excursion into crafting of Harry Potter wands for my kids. Imagine my disappointment when in the movies wands were not lovely turned objects but twigs.
Now I mostly make small bowls and spindle based implements like Dibbers (planting sticks), Muddlers (for mixing drinks) and Spurtles (stir sticks) in my small shop in Dartmouth, NS Canada.
I love how with turning you can take a hunk of old wood, that furniture builders would reject, and create beautiful (and useful) objects.
