Charlie has been turning wood for more than 35 years. He recently retired from teaching the woodworking classes at Keene State College, where woodturning is a significant part of the woodworking curriculum. Charlie is still involved in teaching woodturning, offering weekend classes through Continuing Education at the college. Much of his time now is involved in production woodturning, predominately stair parts and other architectural elements.

Charlie considers himself a “generalist” turner, in that he has no one signature piece, but rather is intrigued with trying new and different techniques that he can share with the students in his classes and other woodturners. He is a juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, and a member of the Guild of New Hampshire Woodworkers. Charlie is president of the Monadnock Woodturners in Keene,NH.
