Clicking on one of the thumbnail images below will load that bowl's page, which contains a larger image of the bowl, and in most cases, a description of the bowl telling how big it is, what species of woods were used in its construction, and how many pieces it contains. In a few cases, that page will contain a thumbnail of a bowl of the same (or very similar) design from a different selection of species.

The bowls below are not patterns that I'm making anymore, generally. There's nothing wrong with them, for the most part, except that I now have a lot more experience with design, construction, and turning, so these pieces are rather dated looking. Not bad. Just dated.

Segmented Woodturning Article: Building and Turning a Segmented Bowl: The "Brick Bowl"

Woodturning is my main activity these days. I realized, just recently, that this paragraph still claimed it was a leisure activity, but that isn't really true, any longer. I've been turning full-time professionally since August of 1999. I'm to the point where the kind of turning you see here is something I do fairly well, which is fortunate, all things considered. It is my hope that over the next few years I can become more versatile with alternate methods of lamination, construction techniques leading to curved patterns, forms which incorporate intentional voids, and anything else I can think of along these lines which makes me more versatile as a turner and which makes my works more interesting.
