I m honored to be selected this month. I live in northern Vermont with my wife of 22 ½ years. We have 3 children. Our 22-year-old daughter is a senior at Wellesley College; our son, who is 21, is an Assistant Manager at Aubuchon Hardware Stores; and our youngest daughter is a junior at Saint Johnsbury Academy. Our oldest daughter is getting married next Halloween. Everyone is coming in costume for the wedding. I ll be making most of the decorations.


I ve been scrolling since the early 1980 s. I used to make all of my own model railroad buildings and bridges from scratch. My first scroll saw was a Delta 16 , which I used for many years. Now I have a Craftsman 16 . I really enjoy fret working and am now getting involved with Intarsia woodworking.

My current projects are being donated to our local church for their Christmas Bazaar. I m also making our pastor a clock for his office. I ve enlarged a cross pattern and am inserting a clock and a picture of our church. I really enjoy redesigning patterns. For instance, I took Christmas ornament patterns and made them into votive candle boxes. We are painting them white and inserting a candle inside. I ve also used Plexiglas to make sun catchers.

Here are a couple of suggestions:
  Use empty prescription bottles for saw blades.  Trace your work on your wood with carbon paper. It takes a little longer, but it s worth it.

Turner Bruce Campbell

Campbell Bruce Campbell lives and works in Coquitlam, BC.  He began woodturning in 1979 and spent about 15 years learning the technical aspects of the craft. Today, turning has grown from his hobby to his profession. He approaches his art by first learning and practicing physical techniques and then working to understand how those techniques are applied to classical designs.  Once he has confidence with a the formal design he looks for ways to alter or combine it to create new and interesting  pieces.

Woodworkers who can capture the "wow effect" are few and far between. Yes there are many good woodworkers, and there are a few really good woodworkers, but the woodworkers that invoke a "wow" with the work they do are very rare. Such is the case with this our feature member Serge Roberge.
