Spirit Hill Woodworks - Heirloom Furniture from Heirloom Forests
Jim began woodworking as a way to stay in touch with his roots in the forests of northern Wisconsin, where he grew up. Some friends and family who still live there had access to beautiful lumber harvested in the woods he still considers home. As he took on more and more ambitious projects, he found that the lumber available from most commercial sources was bland in appearance, limited to a very few species, and expensive. At the same time, he found other people with a similar interest in wood who were generous in sharing their sources—a sawmill in the valley of the Iowa River owned by two brothers; a barn full of precious walnut slabs cut from a monster tree decades ago; a pallet recycler who sets aside pieces of exotic hardwoods from Asian, African, and South American ports; a retiree whose hobby is buying and milling logs from urban tree services. As he talked to this new circle of friends, listened to the hometown neighbors talk about working in their woods, watched the work on logging sites, and read about forestry as a sideline to his woodworking, Jim developed his own set of ideas about how wood should be harvested.
The American Association of Woodturners
The Corporation’s Association’s purpose is to foster a wider understanding and appreciation of lathe-turning as a traditional and contemporary craft and a form of art among the general public, hobbyist turners, part-time turners, and professional turners. This will be accomplished by providing education, information, organization, technical assistance, and publications relating to woodturning.
