These  were an experiment to see what Madrone does when finish turned while green.  The results are quite something!

My Story

My interest in Woodworking

Started  when I was a kid.  I was affectionately known as daddy's little helper.  I worked alongside my dad building and mending fences.  My first solo project as quite a young girl was building a gift for my dad, an "electrician's bench" - think bench to sit on with  shelf to carry your tools wherever you are working.  Of course my dad loved it - bright orange paint and all!

For 45 years I have remained a  hobbyist woodworker who loves to tinker in her shop.  Until...

And then I turned....

While visiting my family in Wisconsin in 2019 my brother-in-law was trying to convert the Shopsmith he had inherited from my dad into a lathe - yes, the very same one I used as a  kid.  Ultimately he  was unable to get the needed parts and bought a  small lathe which I  tried.  I loved it!  I came home and bought myself a lathe and quickly became obsessed.  I now have both a large and small lathe and spend many hours nearly every day in my shop.

Love the Process

I love every step of the process, starting with a round from a tree to the completed piece.  Many times I approach a piece  of wood with no thought of it's final design. I enter into a silent conversation between myself and the wood... and every day I am getting better at listening to what the wood has to say.

My wife and I live in Southern Oregon and when I'm  not turning wood in my shop studio I am working as a Physical Therapist; I'm the director of "Women With Wings," a women's chorus based in Ashland; and I'm the proud mom of two of the most precious dogs I know.
