Harry Nohr was the father of modern woodturning and lived for a time in Mineral Point, serving as postmaster, and creating and selling his bowls on High Street. For many centuries, we have used wood for shelter, furniture, utensils, and fire. When using wood for decoration, we usually look for some way to make an item more appealing or expressive. Woodturning uses a method where the piece is spun against a stationary tool to remove the excess wood. While woodturning has been around since ancient times, tools and methods have changed dramatically in the last twenty or so years, allowing the hobbyist greater flexibility, and the artist even greater artistic expression.
