Tim Heil has created craft since his introduction to woodturning in junior high shop class, circa 1967. He enjoys turning and using functional pieces -rolling pins, fishing lures, paint brushes, pool balls, and Windsor chairs to name a few. Crafting unique screwdrivers, awls, and assorted tools is also a special focus. Tim is an active member of the Minnesota Woodturners and the American Association of Woodturners and has demonstrated at The AAW National Symposium, The Utah Woodturners Symposium, The American Craft Council Show, and The AAW Gallery of Wood Art. His work has been featured in American Woodworker, Fine Woodworking, and American Woodturner.
