Rocket Box explores the space between our planet and the celestial skies beyond. And inside the threaded box are toothpicks--to explore the space between your teeth!

Much of the enjoyment of what I do comes from combining traditional turning techniques that date back hundreds of years with the challenge of producing unique, engaging and beautiful contemporary designs. I utilize an ornamental lathe that is more than 180 years old with only a few updates to the cutters and lathe spindle drive (although there are still times I prefer to treadle or hand operate it instead). For additional capabilities, I also use a rosette lathe, a method of turning that dates back more than 500 years. Together, the possibilities are endless! My fascination with merging the organic and the industrial, the natural and the machine-made feeds my passion for woodturning.
