Dave Barriger
Dave Barriger has worked with wood since 1949, developing a deep understanding and appreciation for its diverse and beautiful qualities. His experience as a college professor of biology and botany has given him an extensive knowledge of growth characteristics found in the variety of hardwoods in this country. Dave began turning in 1964 and has turned full-time since 1995. He has served on the board of directors and is past president of the American Association of Woodturners.
