Welcome to Round About Turnings, your home for custom wood turning pieces and furniture work in Otisco, Indiana. I’ve been turning wood for decades, originally just for friends and family, but decided to make a life out of it after retiring. When I got my first lathe, I thought it’d be a hobby. As it turns out, my passion was too great.

Today, I turn and round work to create all kinds of pieces, from golf club shafts to trinket boxes. But my specialty lies in wood bowls, pens, and furniture of all sorts. It gives me joy to provide my customers with something beautiful yet functional. Whether you need a twelve-inch bowl or a nursery bed, I’d love to help you.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit my website. You’ll find all the information you need to know me and my work on these pages, but if you have any questions or comments don’t hesitate to contact me.
