Come learn about the art of wood-turning, and the various techniques used on a lathe to produce bowls, table lamps, candle holders, and the like.   On display will be examples of Roger’s work at various stages of production along with finished products using a variety of locally-harvested hardwoods.  His laminated creations of contrasting color and texture are especially attractive.
