At this point, woodturning is our hobby not our vocation. We create functional pieces like cheese plates, boxes, bottle stoppers or salad bowls as well as ornamental pieces that are meant to be displayed like hollow forms or holiday ornaments. The wood lathe allows the turner to create interesting forms that accentuate the natural beauty of domestic and exotic hardwoods.
