   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 workshop 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.
