One good turn deserves another!

Welcome to the web page of Barford "Bill" Badland. After 32 years of teaching high school woodshop out in the California desert, I have retired and can now devote all my time to "turning out" beautiful wood vases, jars and other lathe produced items. Along with my lovely wife Jan, I live in a small town on the central coast of California, about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The garage is my workshop. No cars allowed when I'm turning wood! My wares are on display at "Art in the Park" Memorial Day, July Fourth and Labor Day weekends in beautiful downtown Morro Bay. If you have any questions about my tools, techniques or are interested in purchasing a product please email me, Barford. Or you can call me at (805) 772-1628
