Scott Trumbo's purpose within the craft of woodworking is to apply the best tools and techniques to the most stunning hardwoods he can find. Scott's craftsmanship yields useful bowls that are very pleasing to the eye and comfortable to the hands. He believes the eye should be pulled upward by a well shaped bowl. In 1969, Scott took a woodshop course in a rural high school in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and discovered he enjoyed using the wood lathe. Industrial sales management and sales have been his primary work, but his unique, hardwood bowls are used across the country, from the East Coast to the West Coast. Scott does woodturning demos in various American Association of Woodturners clubs throughout the West Coast, but resides with his wife and two children in western Oregon.
