Charlie Black

Charlie At Work
Charlie has enjoyed working with wood for over thirty years. In 2001, when
his family gave him a lathe, he at last found his "niche", woodturning.
He combines an artistic eye and his background as a structural engineer to
let his pieces evolve as he turns. From the first cutting of a log, he instinctively
lets the shape, grain, and natural characteristics of the wood "tell" him how the
finished piece should look. Working mostly with green salvaged wood, he will
rough out the basic shape of the piece, then set it aside to dry before the final
turning and finishing. Most pieces take at least six months from start to finish,
but larger pieces may take close to a year.
