A new guest contributor to my blog is my dad, John who is an amazing craftsman with wood. He has made many beautiful pieces of furniture in the past that are treasured heirlooms for ourselves and our children. But recently he has turned his many woodworking talents to the art of wood-turning on a wood lathe. I wanted to share some of his beautiful creations in this and future posts. I think you will agree that these solid wood bowls are gorgeous and he has a real talent for bringing out the beauty of the grain and colours of the different woods he uses. Enjoy.

As you can see he creates beautiful objects out of solid pieces of wood. I have a salad bowl he made me out of pieced wood; small pieces of wood glued together in a pattern and then turned on the lathe. It is a beautiful piece and I will include a picture in a future post. Don’t forget to appreciate the talents of those people around you, especially if they have talents as great as my dad’s. Cheers, Michele
