Uncle Joe started wood working at a young age as he worked on building a soap box derby in his parents garage. Many years later, after moving into is own house he started acquiring wood working tools. For many years he would make small toys for us kids, and then as we grew his interests grew. One day he found himself looking eye to eye with a wood lathe. He fell in love, and has been turning for many years.
