Welcome to the Garden Of The Gods in Colorado Springs Colorado.
This is one place that inspired me to start turning segmented Items. I have worked with wood off and on most of my life but just started turning wood in 2004. I started by putting that one solid piece of wood on my lathe and ended up with a pencil. From that time I said I have the need to control the shape of the wood to make what I want. That started the segment turning. The picture features me holding my first piece. I was inspired by the Garden of the Gods and the Pikes Peak mountain range .
I'm always trying to do something new. Let it be a bowl, mug, platter, ball or an artistic shape. There is nothing that you can't make when you put your mind to it. Most anything can be made with segmented parts. Please take the time to look at my Gallery, New Items and Techniques. Also you may want to visit the Tools for all of my drawings of the jigs that I use.
