Bob Espen

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."
