Wood Turnings

Rodger Carroll was first introduced to the art of wood turning by his carpentry teacher in high school. Rodger continued his education at Auburn University with a degree in Trade and Industrial Education. He used magazine articles and instructional materials to further develop his skills on the lathe. As a member of the Alabama Baptist Disaster Relief Organization, Rodger gives all revenues from the sale of his items to mission trips that focus on disaster relief and building projects.

After Hurricane Ivan, Rodger began in earnest to create his artwork. Using salvaged wood from the storm, he outlines the shape of an item with a chain saw before moving on to his fifty-year-old lathe. Rodger enjoys the challenge of the slow, steady, hard-to-use machine. Using woods such as cedar, pecan, and walnut, Rodger creates bowls, vases, and other decorative items that he finishes with a high gloss lacquer.
