I have enjoyed woodturnings for over 40 years and created unique gifts for friends and family; when I retired 10 years ago, I began Wooden Treasures by George. I create solid wood bowls, segmented bowls (segmented bowls are made of many individual pieces glued up to form a larger turning), vases and vessels, pens and a variety of small pieces. I also love to experiment with new ideas; some of my recent pieces have taken more than 50 hours to complete.  I use no stains at all, only hand rubbed oil finishes with numerous coats of wax, which highlights the natural beauty of the wood. I strive to make my hand-crafted woodturnings speak to and for the people who buy them; when you need to let someone know just how much you care, my work can speak volumes. I like to think of my creations as “presentation pieces” – unique pieces of wooden art. I take great pride in what I do and hand-sign every piece that allows me space. When creating a piece, I try to use as much imagination as I can and have been
pleasantly surprised at the varied uses people put them to.
