Things I am NOT Interested In

  1. I DO NOT purchase burls. Lots of people like them. I DO NOT like burls!
  2. I am NOT interested in FREE burls!
  3. I DO NOT purchase logs. Logs must be FREE.
  4. I am NOT interested in any old logs or old wood.

    I only turn logs with ABSOLUTELY no cracks in them. This effectively means a log must be FRESHLY cut down from a LIVING tree, with in the last 3 months and KEPT in the SHADE.

  5. I DO NOT accept commission work!

    I spent over 30 years working for IBM. Doing, what other people wanted me to do. I am done with that now! I am retired! I only do what I want! Then, I sell it on Etsy.
