Jim Sannerud is a professional woodturner with his studio in Saint Paul, MN, overlooking the Mississippi River. With a background of 25 years woodworking experience, Jim "turned" to the lathe 6 years ago to follow his passion and creativity. He has shown and sold his turnings nationally and shares his infectious enthusiasm for woodturning with a wide variety of students - from children in Ukraine to community education classes in Saint Paul. He has studied with a number of professional turners and carvers but most recently gained inspiration while studying in Sweden with Willie and Jogge Sundqvist. Jim's work is a unique blend of craft using the modern lathe while holding on to traditional sloyd handwork and techniques.
