My name is Charles Perelman and I am retired from the medical profession. I have been involved with woodworking for 30 years and found my love, wood turning, about 15 years ago, seriously devoting my time in retirement for the last five years. Being in my shop several hours a day is nothing but pure pleasure for me! My favorite items to turn are bowls, especially those that present beautiful markings or striations as the shavings fall away. My delight is awakening the treasures found within the wood and sharing the finished pieces with others.
