Source Of Wood
The primary source of wood comes only from found wood. Doc is strictly against cutting of live trees for my crafts. Doc works with southern hardwoods. Exotic wood is used for some pens, cutting boards, pepper mills, and wine bottle stoppers.
Starting April 2022, Doc will showcase his art at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market in Atlanta, Georgia. Doc also teaches woodturning at Camp Mikell Folk School in Toccoa, GA, twice a year.
