About the presenter:
Barry’s home and workshop is in White Rock, BC where he has lived for the last 44 years. He has been a woodworking artisan for 20 years, initially focusing on flatwork but made the switch to woodturning 9 years ago when he needed a finial & rosettes for a grandfather clock he was making.
He is active with both the Greater Vancouver and Fraser Valley Woodturners Guilds and credit much of his progress to his participation in these associations.
Barry’s hobby reflects an interest in the attempting unusual pieces where the processes to produce them are not immediately obvious (seldom are 2 turnings the same), as well as his passion for attention to detail and the pursuit of perfection in the final finishing of the piece.
