Doug at the Lathe
   Doug at the Lathe

Doug is a wood-turner located in Carroll County, Maryland. Self-trained on the lathe, I love what I can create out of a simple block of wood, God’s creation. For me, the process of turning a block of wood into a piece of art is peaceful in a meditative way. Perhaps I can create something for you some day soon.

In the meantime, take note of all those things around you, around us, that are made from wood. We’ve used wood to live our lives well since the beginning of time. Wood remains integral to who we are.
