About our Demonstrator:

Tod Raines
has been involved in Woodturning for nearly 2 decades. Initially as a self-taught hobbyist, Tod quickly discovered the value in learning from experienced turners like Al Stirt, Don Derry, and Jimmy Clewes. These classes and training really helped with his tool and turning skills but just as important he acquired knowledge about form, function and how the wood grain and texture guides the turning decisions.

Tod now enjoys sharing the knowledge he’s acquired as well as supplying turning tools for woodturners through his online store.

 

His Inspiration: 
“It is the unknown and spontaneous nature of working wood that intrigues me but also the process of how to get to the final piece. I enjoy showing others this craft and enabling their wonder in what is hidden within the wood.
