Pat Lloyd and Douglas Odom don’t head off to the store to buy art supplies when their stash of materials runs out. Instead, they head for the trees — Odom to collect longleaf pine needles, and Lloyd to cut up wood that has fallen or been felled.

Got Wood?We are always on the lookout for local trees that have been felled by storms or recently cut down. Wood is heavy and hard to handle, so you will understand if we are picky about what we think we can use. We will not cut the tree down, but if it is on the ground, and you would like us to take a look, send us an email. We try to return a finished turning to the owner of the tree if we are able to successfully turn a reasonable number of pieces. Preferred species include walnut, maple, cherry, and any kind of burl.
