Woodturning and Pyrography
Bowls, vases, platters and other hand-turned wood products. Woodburned lighthouses on hand-turned plates.
In his home workshop, Bob creates wood products such as bowls, bases, platters, and wine stoppers and occasionally wood-burning lighthouse images on some of his turned platters. Crafting his objects mainly from local wood, including cherry, maple, poplar, and walnut, mostly reclaimed from his neighborhood, he creates a shape that highlights the grain, color, bark and patterns unique to each piece of wood. Bob loves to start with a log and see what surprises turn up.
