Welcome to Twine & Twigs!
All of my turnings are crafted by myself from start to finish in my studio in St. Johns, Florida.
I often get asked how I became interested in woodturning and when I got started. I have always had a desire to work with wood and create things. My grandfather had been a carpenter. I never really found the chance until after I retired and started to focus more on my bobbin lace making hobby. Tiny spindles, called bobbins are used to make my lace. I thought I could start making my bobbins and tools, so I bought my first lathe. I took a pen turning class and I was immediately addicted to woodturning.
Not only did I turn a few bobbins, but I also turned numerous pens, coffee scoops, bottle stoppers, things with handles, etc. My early turnings were given as gifts to family and friends. I started receiving requests for my turnings and decided to see if I could sell my items to help pay for more tools. It is a vortex! My garage soon morphed into a studio and I acquired more tools. Lately, I have been turning bowls and birdhouse ornaments and will soon also make them available for purchase.
