DAVE AND ALISON ROBERTS BIOGRAPHY
After retiring Dave and Alison moved from the East to the West Coast taking to the shop full time on Pender Island BC.
Dave and Alison both have a previous woodworking background from making furniture to each building a home.
Both Dave and Alison are self-taught wood turners and turn a variety of large and small pieces varying from pepper mills and bowls to very large artistic pieces.
The local woods they turn are sourced from storm damaged trees, pruning, development and through some local arborists. Healthy trees are not harvested for any of their work.
Dave’s technical efficiency and mechanical aptitude has enabled a smooth transition to wood turning and figuring out how to innovate Alison’s ideas.
They continue to innovate with new designs and techniques creating unique one-of-a-kind art pieces.
