Jim has been working with wood since he took his first woodworking class at the age of nine. That experience inspired him to start his own woodworking business and share with others the beauty and quality of hand-made wooden objects. In 2007 he began a pilot program in Ukraine teaching woodturning to children in orphanages. He has taught private and small group classes for the last 7 years in his St.Paul studio as well as at various folk schools, colleges and universities around the country. Jim makes his living woodturning and designing and building furniture.
