My passion is wood. I love the feel of wood, the smell of wood, the textures of wood and the character of wood. I have been making things from wood since I was a child. I became hooked on wood turning in 2007. I make and sell my artistic creations in Art Shows Nationwide. I have taken wood turning classes from Master Artists in gallery turning, mineral inlay, piercing & texturing, pyrography, air brushing and more. I have been teaching others to create with wood since 2015. Message me to set up a time and date of your choice.

If you are looking for something a little different to do - this is fun, unique and for sure an out of the ordinary experience! We had a great time making our own bowls!

This is a must-do. Roger is passionate about making quality pieces out of wood & appreciating the character of the wood. I really enjoyed making the bowl & learning from someone that truly loves what he does. His shop is clean, stocked, and functional. Keep in mind that patience is key. You’ll do great with Roger’s instructions & help as long as you heed his warning about being forceful with the wood. It’s truly a great experience and Roger is fantastic host & teacher. We loved it so much that we went back & made pens 2 days after making our bowls. Great experience!

This experience occurred on my 31st anniversary celebration. My wife and I had a great time together. Been a long time woodworker but had never used a lathe and it was a lot of fun.

Everything was set up to start our experience when we arrived. He gave us very clear instructions and he had all the safety equipment necessary. He helped us make 2 beautiful and unique bowls. Overall a good experience!

What a great and unique experience, plus we got to have something tangible to bring home and use! We LOVE our bowls and want to make more using different design ideas we came up with after. It really was a great time and Roger made us feel very comfortable and confident. It is very relaxing you just need to relax to be relaxed because it does seem intimidating. Totally not though and you should try it! :)

Roger is amazing, even I was super jumpy and scary in the beginning. However, he managed to claim me down and give me some hand on instructions to help me make my own wooden blow. Our blows comes out super lovely. Roger are really knowledgeable with lots of stuff and told us many meaningful stories. Really enjoy theworkshop and looking forward for more 😄
