LJ Logo 500x500Trees are beautiful living things that purify the air, provide shade, and homes to wildlife.  Many times a tree’s life is cut short due to storms, disease or man.  I work with reclaimed wood provided by trees that have had their life cut short.  This allows me to help the tree live on through my art.  I find the beauty within the wood and turn it into a one of a kind creation that you can enjoy.

Most of my creations are lovingly hand turned on my lathe.  The wood speaks to me to show me the vessel it has inside.  Many long hours are spent on each piece designing, turning, sanding and finishing it into a piece of art.

If you are looking for a piece of art for yourself or to give as a gift, visit my Gallery pages to view the items that I have created.  Here you can see examples of my art including past and present items.

Gallery Pages:

Visit our Gallery Pages to see the bowls and other items that I have created so far.  This will allow you to view bowls by wood type and see the artistic beauty of each wood.  You will find that no two bowls are alike even when made with wood from the same tree.  Each different part of the tree produces its own unique bowl.  Come back often as my Gallery is always being added to as I complete new projects.

On-Line Ordering:

You will find all of my current items on sale in my Etsy Shop; The Lathe Junkie.  My items make a perfect gift for Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays or any other special occasion.  This store has all of the bowls and other items that are currently for sale.  Each item shown is available for immediate shipment.  Be sure to visit often as our selection is always changing.
