Location: North Royalton Ohio

67 years old, Been working with wood since I was 16. At first I was a wood patternmaker and cabinetmaker for 25 years. After i lost my job I started a bussiness making pictures out of wood. I guess I am the guy who invented intarsia since i started doing it in 1980. Gail Roberts started her bussines a couple years later.I did very well with it and only recently completely stopped making them. 12 years ago I started doig abstract sculptuers out of discarded wood. I became known as an "Environmental debris artist" I loved doing it and did well enough to have an exhibition at the Canton Art Museum. Also many other shows and art galleries have sold and disp[layed my work in this form.. Recently in the last 4 years I have taken up turning, something a did a lot as a wood pattermaker. I have fused my abtract art to the bowls and platters to make something unique...Enjoy...Ray

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
