Lan Brady

 
Topic:

Treenware

Lan Brady has been a woodworker for 29 years. He found woodturning 10 years ago, totally by accident.  Like most others, the addiction was immediate.  Most of the shop equipment was sold or started performing a support role for the lathe.

While most woodturners are working toward being the latest and greatest benchmark, Lan has gone the opposite direction in time.  He turns items that pay tribute to our past, our heritage, and our roots. 

Most of his inspiration comes from antique stores and museums.  Just enter the Sear Word "Treenware" on EBay and you will be amazed at "What's old is new again.".
