Artist Spotlight: Bob Stancil

After four tours in Vietnam and thirty years in the Navy, Bob retired to pursue his lifelong interest in woodworking and turning.   Bob is also a passionate collector of wood.  Everything from a fallen tree, a unique species, or 140-year-old timber salvaged from a river bottom, each of piece has a story.  He ages the wood over several years, then allows the unique character of the wood determine the form.   His work is functional with an understated timeless beauty.
