So Simple But With Such Beauty Within
This is where it begins... well, after the idea that is. Strips of wood, all blond, all simple. But hidden within is the heart of a lighthouse and the beginning of the art.
What Was Is Now...
It is the lathe that brings the piece to life. After all those individual pieces, glue and rubberbands, it is with the turning that the shape and the luster begin to emerge.

When It Feels Right, It's Right
Often times I feel a strong connection to one element of the lighthouse, but have to take a break and wait for the right finishing touches. This lighthouse has been under construction for a longer time than any other. Dubbed the Purina Lighthouse by my wife, Kathy, it will take just the right inspiration and the perfect wood to complete.
As one project comes to an end, others stand in the waiting.
