Lately I've been making more furniture for our home. My designs are essentially all unique, inspired by a mix of modern and far eastern aesthetics, including works by George Nakashima.
bowls & platters
Of the 122 bowls and platters I've turned as of March 2023, the following is a representative selection (photos of nearly all my bowls are on this separate BOWLS page). Many are decorative, but most are at least somewhat functional. I generally source my wood from local trees.
Before I was a woodworker or a woodturner, I was a woodcarver. My first pieces were figure carvings, followed by relief carvings (including dozens of plaques commissioned by friends). I have since branched out to larger sculptural carvings and sculptural bowls turned on the lathe (all bowls are sculptures in a sense, but these are especially sculptural).
Below is a sampling of utilitarian items I've made. Not pictured are dozens more picture frames and many cutting boards, clocks, etc.
