Like most woodturners, Adam started out as a 'flat' wood worker making rectilinear furniture and cabinets. Inspired by turners such as Richard Raffan, Chris Stott, Ray Key and Mike Stafford, Adam likes to turn boxes most of the time. There is just something about the blend of form, precision, and the element of risk. No two boxes are ever the same, and none are truly safe until they are completely done and off the lathe. Although he turn boxes most often, he regularly turn all sorts of things from pens to platters.
