Paul Cayer's bowls featured in September and October
As a carpenter for many years doing home renovations, new home construction and a variety of other projects, Paul has had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of wood in many different ways. He had always wanted to work with a lathe, so he began taking wood turning classes. One, for which the project was to make a cowboy hat from a large piece of wood, taught Paul new techniques, and inspired him to invest in a lathe of his own. After experimenting with a couple of lathes he acquired second hand, he purchased the lathe of his dreams and has been turning bowls and various other pieces made from primarily local wood. He enjoys taking a piece of wood and making it into something useful. “
Paul’s bowls originate primarily from local trees, many of which come from his son’s property in Bethel, though he often receives calls from people who have older trees in need of removal. Taking an old tree, which has special meaning, and preserving it by transforming it into a beautiful and functional piece, offers great satisfaction. See more of Paul's work
