Woodwork

I am 75 years old and have run a metalworking business for 52 years. One of my early craft mentors was a man in Mineral Point- Harry Nohr. The Nohr home was a salon for young local artists, with many of us being put to work helping Harry prepare his bowl blanks. After Harry died in 1976, I inherited some of his wood. It sat in my shop for 40 years. As I moved towards retirement I began to turn bowls using this material. Now I am cutting wood from a 40 acre timber property we own, drying and processing it into utilitarian and also artistic objects.
