Ken has been an active woodturner since 1983. In the early years, this hobby provided a relaxing diversion from his fulltime job as an aerospace engineering officer with the Canadian air force. The hobby soon became a passion. Ken has been selling his creative works since 1996 at craft shows and local galleries.
He routinely participates in the shows of both the Cumberland Arts and Crafts Guild and the Gloucester Craftsmen's Guild spring and Christmas shows, the Cloyne Showcase in Aug and the Ottawa Wood Show. Ken has been very active in the wood turning community. He was president of the Valley Wood turners (Ottawa) from Jan 2001 to Dec 2005 and has been a wood turning teacher for over ten years, having introduced over 250 students to the wonderful world of woodturning.
