where Things get strange

In my day job, I am a cognitive neuroscientist. I also love woodturning. I specialize in strange renditions of common objects like bowls, spindles, and lamps. My modus operandi is that I aim to create a vase before breaking the piece and ending up with a really cool back scratcher.

If you want a magic wand, I can create that. If you are a marine biologist who specializes in sharks, I can build a bowl for you with sharks in an epoxy inlaid rim. If you wax more traditional in your woodturning preferences, I can create a conventional bowl or lamp for you.

I hand craft all pieces from scratch on communal lathes at Philadelphia Woodworks. Visit my online marketplace by clicking on some of the samples below. Since all items are made to order, I have very little inventory on hand. I’ll build your piece and ship it to you as quickly as I can.
