Ross started his love affair with wood while in high school. After college Ross taught woodworking to hundreds of young people in the 30 years in the Brodhead, WI public schools.
Ross loves to expose the hidden treasures inside a log. Trees are his passion, and he has planted scores of them and has harvested many. His favorite thing to do in the whole world is to turn a bowl to see the beauty that God has placed inside. He uses Danish oil, and water-based finishes so the finished bowl is durable, and can be used for generations to come.
