From High School to now, still love turning…
I am a retired Human Resources Executive who got my start in woodturning like most in high school. I earned my degree in Industrial Education and taught high school wood working and drafting for a few years. Then the call of the Colorado ski slopes drew me from my native New Jersey; the planned one season at Keystone Resort ended up being fifteen. I made it to Prescott Valley via the Texas Hill Country where I was finally able to build my dream shop and get back into woodturning. All the places I lived prior enabled me to use my woodworking skills completing major remodeling projects on all my homes. Now, it’s a daily trip to the shop to indulge in my first love: woodturning. I joined PAW in early 2022 and am so glad I did as my skills improve daily with the mentoring of PAW’s master woodturners.
