J Paul Fennell

J. Paul Fennell, a resident of Scottsdale, Arizona, is proof that even a former rocket scientist (he worked on the Apollo program) can be a successful professional woodturner. Paul specializes in hollow forms that are subsequently carved off the lathe with precisely designed geometric patterns. He demonstrated by hollowing an albizia bowl, using a light inserted into the bowl while he turned in the darkened shop. He also showed how he draws patterns on the bowl and then carves using various dentristy tools.
