Mark Magelssen (Kaua'i Wood-N-Things)

Mark Magelssen attended a wood turning demonstration in August 2010 and was immediately hooked. Joining the Kauai Wood Turners Club, he started turning in 2011 at Robin Clark's shop, bought a lathe, then built his own shop in 2012. He loves turning LARGE bowls off the end of the lathe, small pens and everything in between. His wood turning has given him new insight into his day job as an ER physician, having ended up as a patient in the ER. Even so, Mark looks forward to retiring so he can spend more time in his wood shop. He feels blessed to be able to work with the many beautiful woods of Kauai. His work can be found at "The Koa Store" in Lihue and "Havaiki" in Hanalei.
