About Me

Originally from Brooklyn, NY, and now residing in the Atlanta, GA area, I’m retired from a 43+ year career as a telecommunications engineer. I’ve been a woodworker for most of my life. After building furniture for many years, I started woodturning in 2000. Most of the wood I turn is from the Atlanta area. This wood generally comes from trees downed in storms or from tree removals and would otherwise be headed to landfills or chippers. I also like to turn exotic woods and burls. No two pieces of wood are alike and it’s not until I start turning a piece when the wood reveals its hidden beauty.  I’ve turned many types of forms and objects including bowls, platters, hollow vessels, goblets, and  boxes, etc., but my main focus is on hollow vessels. I also like to embellish my turnings by piercing, burning, coloring, carving, and texturing. Since 2012, I’ve been focused almost exclusively on the “basket illusion”, where a turned piece attempts to resemble woven basketry. I enjoy demonstrating at woodturning clubs and symposia, as well as teaching. I work in my studio located in the basement of my home in Dunwoody, GA. I’m an active member of the Georgia Association of Woodturners, Atlanta Woodturners Guild, and the American Association of Woodturners.
