Hand Crafted Wood Turned Bowls, Platters, Vessels, and more!

I had inherited a wood lathe from my father's uncle but never used it until I built a workshop in 2006. I began making wooden spatulas to give to family and friends. I soon realized that what I remembered from what I was taught in eighth grade shop class wasn't going to get me very far, so I signed up for classes at the Woodcraft store in Spokane. That changed my life. I bought a new lathe, then another, then another. I went to workshops taught by Russ Fairfield, Trent Bosch, and Mike Mahoney. My style is evolving from utilitarian to artistic as has the name of my business. It started as Eagle Woodcrafts, which has a presence on Facebook, and is now Yugen Woodcrafts. Yugen is a Japanese word that has been described to me as meaning an awareness of the universe that evokes an emotional response too deep and mysterious for words. I hope that you find yugen in my work.

All pieces are handcrafted, unique and definately one of a kind items. Made in Northwest Montana, USA!!
