Since retiring from 3M in 2006, Todd has followed his passion for woodturning. All his creations are hand– turned on a lathe. He has taken instruction and training from many internationally known woodturners. Todd has endeavored to master many different styles and forms, using almost entirely woods native to North America.
Todd’s repertoire includes bowls, lidded boxes, items with tall and delicate finials, wooden jewelry, platters and hollow forms. Surface embellishment with woodburning or carving sometimes graces his pieces. A signature of his work is an excellent surface finish. In 2017 and 2018, he won Blue Ribbons at the MN State Fair with extra awards for “excellent craftsmanship”. Todd is a long-time member of the Minnesota Woodturners Association and the American Association of Woodturners. He welcomes commissioned work. He lives in Lake Elmo, MN and can be reached at 651-274-4658.
