Uncle Dave's Woodshop

 I 'rescue' wood that is no longer wanted and turn it into something useful or artistic (or both!) I source the wood from firewood piles, the side of the road, demolition projects and wherever I can get it.  I can do both wood turning and woodwork. I want each piece that I make to say "nothing and no one is useless - no matter what it looks like on the surface - it can always be transformed into something beautiful". 

 

Rescue - Reuse - Repair - Recycle - Repurpose 

What inspires you: The challenge to take a piece of wood and transform it into something beautiful.  I work hard to create that perfect yet, so far, elusive creation. 

This bowl came from a Kauri beam that was riddled with bora.  The previous owner said the wood was no good and didn't even want to give it to me.
