Here is my Woodturning!

In 2009 I learned to turn at the Woodworkers Club in Norwalk, CT, after retiring from being a remodeling contractor. I started inlaying when a crack developed in a bowl. To save the bowl I designed an inlay of a tree that incorporated the crack, and the crack became part of a tree trunk. I became intrigued with inlaying and was soon incorporating inlaid designs into most of the bowls I made. I use malachite, turquoise, and marble, which I color using water soluble pigments.
