Okay.....so tell me your shop is any neater.
My grandfather was a cabinetmaker and my father was a shop teacher. Somehow, I think I was intended to be here. I started Doctor’s Woodshop to make the woodturning finishes that I liked from the materials that I wanted to use. Fortunately, others have found these products to be useful to them, too.
I touched my first wood turning tool in my grandfather’s basement in 1954. He set me to making round stair spindle blanks from square stock. I might have made one done that afternoon. My turning is much faster now. I wish I could say I have been turning continuously since then, but life gets in the way of fun sometimes. In 1998, I got tired of buying turned legs for the tables I was making and thought I could turn them myself. I’ve been almost exclusively a woodturner since then.
