Their products were as varied as they are. Burnsides sold custom wooden items ranging from clocks and jewelry to toys and decorative spoon sets. Cleveland sold baked goods, jams and dolls. And Wheeler sold items from storage units he had bought.
For 15 years, Blackfootâ€™s Jim Curlee has been practicing wood turning, the art of designing and building artistic bowls, vases, urns and hollow forms as well as user bowls, such as salad and fruit bowls. Some salad bowls measure 16 to 18 inches.
â€śI can make large bowls or smaller bowls; whatever people request,â€ť Curlee said.
â€śLike most wood turners, I started out using solid pieces of wood,â€ť he said. â€śI soon discovered that large, highly figured pieces of wood were hard to find and very expensive when you did find them.
