Brenneman is an experienced wood tuner who started turning wood in the \u201870s on a Sears lathe trying to produce furniture.<\/h1>\r\nIn 2014, he joined West Virginia Wood Turners Association and began making bowls.\r\n\r\nBrenneman is partial to West Virginia hardwoods like maple, cherry and walnut. When making bowls, he looks for a nice figure and interesting grain patterns. He likes seeing the results - seeing what\u2019s inside.\r\n\r\n\u201cTurning a bowl is like opening a present - you never know what you\u2019re going to get,\u201d says Brenneman. He has started experimenting with embellishing wood with different filling materials to strengthen to the wood and add another dimension of beauty to the wood.\r\n\r\nBrenneman\u2019s bowls are available at WV Fine Artisans, 1042, Washington Street, East, Lewisburg, or at www.wvfineartisans.com.
