Our local club, Ohio Valley Woodturners Guild (OVWG) http://www.ovwg.org has many opportunities to demonstrate and promote woodturning in the community. I try to participate in as many of these events as possible. I love to turn and really enjoy the interaction with the public. Frequently I am introducing folks to the art and craft of woodturning for the very first time. My wooden hats always attract attention. Most people have a hard time believing they are all one piece of wood. See my “Hat Making” gallery for a complete picture essay of how I do it.
I have been selling my pieces since 2009. I do one or two local art shows each year as well as maintain a permanent booth at Loveland Studios on Main. http://www.studiosonmain.com/
