I design all items in my studio in Montvale, New Jersey, USA. The primary tool I use to create my art is a Robust lathe. It is an American made machine and many Makers consider it the dream machine. I can turn a two hundred pound log down to a fifteen pound seating stool or make a small piece of jewelry. Once I have the form I still need to refine and finish it at the workbench. This will take a variety of techniques that may include pyrography, carving and staining.
