Joshua Reeve

I began turning wood in 2015 after taking a one day class at a local pottery studio. Shortly there after I found a used lathe for about $50 and started turning in the garage. Within a year, after realizing the used lathe was just that, I purchased a small, new, low end lathe. A few years of skill development has led to a high end lathe and more artistic endeavors. One of my favorite designs is called segmented. This is where the item begins as a flat board that is cut into trapizoidal pieces that are then glued into rings of various sizes. the rings are then glued to each other and turned to make the item. By using different types of wood, a design is created. There are examples of segmented items in some of the photos on this page.
