Douglas McCulloch

I have always loved working with my hands and tools of all sorts to make and fix things. Before retiring from the corporate world, I began looking for a creative outlet involving wood and found woodturning. I have been turning for 11 years now using both domestic and imported hard woods. A great deal of my wood comes from salvaged sources (saved from the wood chipper) here in Georgia. I tend to start pieces using recently cut logs which take longer to complete because after shaping and hollowing a piece, it must dry slowly for up to 12 months before putting it back on the lathe for finishing.

Like many things in life, woodturning is easy to learn the basics, but takes a lifetime to master. One of the reasons I love woodturning is the infinite variety of pieces that are possible, and the challenge of maximizing the artistic potential of a given piece of wood or log. I am currently exploring color and complimentary materials (resin, glass, metal, paint, minerals, etc.) in my art which has greatly expanded the breadth and interest of my work.

I have several juried awards to my credit, including a "Best in Show" at the 2012 Arts Clayton Juried Art Show. I have also been represented in the past by the Mountain Mist Gallery in Cashiers, NC and the 2 Rules Gallery in Marietta, GA. I am a member of the American Association of Woodturners, the Lowcountry Woodturners here in Savannah, and The Landings Art Association.
