Jim is a native of Kentucky; born and raised in Laurel County.  He began woodturning on a lathe in 2006.  His work with solid wood turnings are generally guided by wood texture, color, and grain pattern.  Jim says that the process of turning segmented pieces provide an opportunity to be more creative in shape, special features, and wood types combined to create a unique appearance.  Individual small pieces of wood, sometimes several varieties, are glued together into a rough form.  That form is then mounted on the lathe, and the final shaping is completed.

Jim, now retired, is completely self taught in his craft and spends the majority of time woodturning.  “I continue to learn something new with almost every project.”
