“watch the master at work!”

Watch woodturning demonstrations and see kaleidoscopes being made. Yes, I love to give tours! I'm open from 10-5 on Tuesday though Saturday. Just like a fancy art gallery, I'm closed on Sundays & Mondays. Otherwise, you will find me here by chance or by appointment so it's best to e-mail or call ahead to arrange a time. If I'm not in the window, stop in anyway and tell me to get back to work. I delight in showing visitors what I do.Tours are free, but of course, I am exceptionally happy when you buy one of my creations. The PVC scopes are only $10 each and I love playing with the tourists and showing them all the possibilities with them. The bus tours who stop in also love them. Make sure you bring your camera! Take all the pictures & videos you'd like. In 2013 I had visitors from 32 States and 12 foreign countries.

Went here last month and this guy not only is a wizard at making what he does, he is fun to watch and talk to. I believe I saw a Mensa Certificate on his wall!

This is a must see stop! Especially if you loved kaleidoscopes as a child! Pizza Ranch was great too!
