Lathe work is a true wood art form that goes back to anchient Egypt. The lathe is known as the Mother of Machine Tools since it was one of the first machine based tools.
Lathes can produce many different types of objects from candle stick holders, to wood spheres.
Vernon Gillispie Sr. has been producing lathed products for many years and has challenged himself with uncommon wood to produce beautiful works of art. If your looking for the traditional turnings, you may not find many here. Many items created on a lathe can be reproduced to exact measurements. However, the majority of the items found here are one of a kind. Although some may have some similar shapes, the variations of the wood means that they will never be exactly alike.
