About the Artist

I am a retired grandpa who loves to travel. On my travels around the United States, I search for special pieces of wood that just cry out to be turned into something beautiful! I enjoy hand-turning the wood into unique creations that everyone will love.

My name is Gerry Davis.  I have worked with wood for as long as I can remember.  The first thing I turned on a lathe was a walnut ring for my wife.  My wife was expecting our first child and her fingers swelled too much for her to wear her wedding rings.  I was hooked on wood turning from then on.  I could not do too much turning until I retired a few years ago.  I am finding that there are so many things that can be done on a lathe that a lifetime isnít long enough to do it all, let alone master it all.

Working with the different woods is the most exciting part.  Mother Nature has created wood with great beauty and it is simply waiting for someone to uncover it for all to admire.  Most of the wood I use I find in firewood piles, freshly cut trees or are discards from cabinet makers.  When I do purchase wood from the lumberyard I look for the wood no one else seems to want, the more knots, curl, and character in the grain the better.

 I hope you enjoy your unique wooden piece as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
