About Bernie

Welcome to my website.

My creative passion is woodturning and I particularly focus on live edge pieces.  All my bowls, platters and vases retain a bark or natural edge.

The pieces are individually crafted to show off colour and grain, and to maximize the impact of the bark edge.  They are both functional and decorative; an oil based food safe finish is used for all pieces and they can be hand-washed with mild soap.

The local woods I use are reclaimed from storm damaged trees, arborists and log dumps in and around the city of Toronto.

You can buy my bowls, platters and vases at various craft shows in the Toronto area throughout the year, or in person by contacting me via email.

Upcoming Shows

When you visit me at a show, you'll find my best selection of bowls, platters, dishes and vases. The majority of pieces fall in the $35 - $75 range, with a few very large or spectacular pieces up to $200 or more. See my online gallery for a preview of the types of pieces you may see.
