My Story

From a young age, I’ve always been drawn to the art of woodworking.

I was captivated by the intricate grain patterns, the rich colors, and the endless possibilities of what could be created from this natural material.

As I grew older, my fascination with woodworking grew, and I was determined to learn the craft myself.

Comletely self taught, I started experimenting with various woodworking techniques, trying my hand at furniture building, carving, and other woodworking skills.

But it was when I discovered woodturning that I found my true passion.

The process of transforming a rough cut of wood into a beautifully turned object on a lathe fascinated me.

The sheer joy of creating functional and artistic pieces with firewood is incomparable.

I immersed myself in learning different woodturning techniques, studying different types of wood, and honing my skills through trial and error.

Woodturning has become more than just a hobby for me. It’s a form of self-expression, a way to connect with nature, and a means to create unique and meaningful pieces that bring joy to others.

I am grateful for the opportunity to pursue my passion for woodturning and continue to explore and push the boundaries of this timeless craft.
