Alder bowl by Ketchikan wood turner John Warnock measuring approximately 5.25" across and 2.5" high
About his craft, John Warnock says, "I’ve been working with wood for a very long time. I credit my seventh grade wood shop teacher for giving me a wonderful introduction to woodworking."
Each piece of wood has its own unique qualities and one of his greatest pleasures is trying to bring out its natural beauty. John considers himself a craftsman in that he cares more about expressing the lost art of hand-crafting and sharing the natural beauty of of wood than about being the biggest or best known.
"It’s hard to say what inspires me on a project. I am always trying to out-do myself. I enjoy trying new techniques, and often an idea floats around in my head for weeks or months on end, before I actually start. As for the wood I like, purple heart is my favorite, but maple, walnut, and cherry are also nice. I also like alder and Alaskan cedar."
