Wood Turning

Our prized shop equipment is the wood turning lathe. With this beaut, we're able to turn amazing vessels, spindles, bowls, drink ware, and other round objects...

We started off making the wheels for our toys but have expanded and delved deep into the world of turning. This work is truly something we love! It’s especially rewarding when we find our own locally sourced wood and discover something amazing with the wood.
