In 2014 my husband and I decided we would turn pens for all of our family and friends for Christmas. We started in November and with my husband’s help I turned my 1st pen and fell in love with turning.

In 6 weeks we had made over 35 pens for family and friends. It wasn’t long after Christmas that we started getting requests from people for pens they wanted and “Turning Provence” was born.

I have become Hopelessly hooked on turning. It has become the family joke that my husband taught me to turn and now he has to fight me for the lathe. Since those 1st pens we are always looking to expanded our turning abilities and projects.

Now I cast some of my own blanks and Stabilize wood as well. It’s journey that keeps expanding and we’re loving it every step of the way.

Thank you for visiting our site and sharing in our journey.
