JOURNAL GAZETTE: Carving out their own niche

Gary Travis remembers going as a child to visit his uncle, Ralph Travis, a master carpenter who lived in Chicago. “He’d always have a little project set up for me,”  the Fort Wayne man recalls. “He taught me how to hammer a nail, use a hand planer –  no power tools back then. He’s the one who really got me interested in it.”  For Travis, “it” is woodworking, and now 64, he has never lost interest in the craft – particularly wood turning, which he compares to using a potter’s wheel, only horizontally on a lathe and using wood instead of clay as the raw material. 09/13/2015 Read article.
