Meet Jerry DuCellier: Wood Turner

I started turning in January of 08 and it didn't take me long to get the bug on wood turning. I turn vases and bowls, candlesticks, birdhouses, wall-mounted items, platters, Christmas tree ornaments and I've gotten into turning drop spindles for yarn work. I also turned candlesticks out of aluminum and brass.

The wood that I use for turning comes from downed trees or damaged trees on my farm or if someone has a piece of wood that came from their place that is of sentimental value I will turn things for them.

One of the things that I enjoy most is when I get people who have never turned anything into turning.
