About the Book
In May of 2015, I stumbled upon Richmond Woodturners yearly competition. Seeing the marvelous possibilities for what can be made from wood, I was inspired to include wood- turning in The Forest Project—a collaborative effort documenting 60-acres of land being clear-cut for development. Before the land was cleared, 15 members of Richmond Woodturners cut, sealed and distributed 16 trees to 50 members of the group. Over the next year, members of various ages and expertise turned wood from the forest into the beautiful work you see displayed on the following pages.
