It's Just a Hobby...

The works and quirks of Steven G Marlow

Maker of things - mostly of wood - sometimes for function, sometimes for beauty, sometimes for both, but always for pleasure.

Demonstrations, personal instruction, or group workshops with hands-on learning are available to all.  Please visit the "Classes and Demos" page for additional information


Woodturning is a hobby that allows me to incorporate unlimited creative expression with something else very dear to me: Power tools.    

Our craft is unique, and my goal has always been to seek a happy medium between "art" and "function".  Teaching the techniques that I have learned or developed over the years allows me to hone my skills even further.  Since 2003 I have tried to use only domestic hardwoods, and as much "recycled" lumber as I could in my work.  I believe that my turnings can be beautiful and functional while still supporting ecological ideals. 

Simplicity in design, function, and the uncomplicated methods used to create my pieces connect the work and the result. 

It has been said that "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep."
