Don retired from AT&T, is now a resident of Cleveland, GA. He has been turning wood native to the NE Georgia Mountains for 20 years. He is a member of the American Association of Woodturners and Mountain Laurel Woodturners.

His turnings include: bowls, platters, large plates, modern spheres, writing pens, candle holders of various shapes and architectural turnings. Don recently completed a commission for over a hundred balusters for a the restoration of an 1896 historic home in Abbeville,S.C.. He also turns lamp bases for renowned potter Charlie West.

No turning is the same. Normally it begins with a “downed” tree that would have ended up in a fire pit, as chips or discarded in a recycle center. The turning process itself may take up to a year to complete. The unique characteristic of each piece depends on its difference in color, grain, healed scars and aging.

Don takes orders for custom work and gives private lessons.
