“My home and studio will be open to visitors to see my shop, the processes, and the finished products of my wood carving and wood turning business. I produce finely crafted wooden spoons, turned bowls, canoe paddles, and wildlife art using locally sourced hardwoods and natural finishes. My pieces begin with wood in log form, which is processed to become finished useful objects that celebrate the beauty of wood grain patterns, colors, and textures. Much of my work is done with traditional handtools. My shop is located in a beautiful location on Casco Bay.”

55 Pine St, Belfast ME 4915
Open Studio, Demo of Process/Technique
HOURS: Saturday & Sunday 10-4pm
“My workshop is located on the floor below my wife Willy’s studio in our barn, one half mile from downtown Belfast. You will be walking through my workshop on your way to Willy’s atelier, so I hope you will take a moment to look around and say hi! I will be making wood oars, which are largely hand made with the use of modified antique wooden planes, spokeshaves and a draw knife, as well as shop made tools specific to the task. There is one thing I enjoy nearly as much as rowing, and that is talking to folks about oars and the tools I use to make them.”
