When my friend upgraded his lathe several years ago, I bought his previous one.  Now, two lathes later, I cannot wait to get into my basement workshop first thing in the morning to create beautiful, decorative, and useful original pieces from mostly locally sourced wood.

Since retirement, wood turning (and enjoying my ’04 t-bird) have become my passions!

My favourite maple memory:

My parents made their own maple syrup on their farm in Scotch Corners, near Carleton Place.  Maple syrup was available on the table at all three meal of the day!   I long for the ‘old days”.
