Bob Espen has been turning 20 plus years. A former Alaska resident and machinist mate in the US Navy, he enjoys trying anything once. The smallest piece in his collection is a 1/4" high 5/32" diameter hollowed Royal Palm Nut, while the biggest is Igor, a 27" diameter x 31" tall hollowed Pecan vase. His passion is working with burled woods of all species.
"I always try to get the wood to show off it's best side and sometimes that means not getting what I had originally planned."
