Welcome to Red Oak Hollow Lathe Works, a one-man woodturning shop located in the Kansas countryside, a few miles east of Manhattan, KS, "The Little Apple." I hope you enjoy your visit here, and that maybe I've piqued your curiosity about the magical art of woodturning. The photos at the top of each page will change with each page change. Click on a photo for a larger picture and more information. By the way, we have a new woodturning club here now so if you are interested in more information about the craft or learning how to turn wood yourself, let me know.
