Timberturner/Bowlwood blog is run by Ray Asselin, a woodturner (woodturning) from Western Massachusetts. In the scenic area of New England, ripe with history and dense forests, lies Asselin’s small shop.
It’s filled with handcrafted wooden bowls, vases, lamps, and jewelry carved out of southern oak and hickory wood found on the border of Massachusetts and Connecticut.
“Most days of my youth were spent in the woods near home, but it wouldn’t be until my early twenties that I really started learning to identify the trees I had grown up with,” said Ray. “Learning about them and working their wood with my hands have led to a deep reverence for the grandest members of the plant world we often take for granted.”
If you’re interested in purchasing any one of Asselin’s woodturning masterpieces, they’re available on his blog and on Etsy for purchase.
