As someone who was interested in the process of woodturning from a young age, I was finally able to begin in the early 1980's, I took a couple of workshops, and read a lot about it, and I worked at developing good techniques.
I chose the name "Midnight Woodturner" because at one time, I would begin to work once the rest of the family was in bed for the night.
Most of the items I produce are designed to be used in everyday life - pens, key rings, wine bottle stoppers, coffee and ice cream scoops.
Friends who have my pens say that it's a pleasure to have something handmade that they can use every day.
