A Young Wood Turner to Watch
Kayden Dorma is just 17 years old and lives in Cobble Hill on Vancouver Island BC. He has been wood-turning for about three years and has fallen in love with it.
Nothing specific got him into turning wood; it was kind of an out of the blue idea one day. He found an old lathe online, set it up in his dads shed and started turning a random assortment of wood.
He soon got hooked on wood-turning and convinced his dad to help him build his own shop. Once the shop was done he invested in a brand new wood lathe and tools and started getting creative.
All of his product is turned with a very high attention to detail. He likes to use both local kinds of wood from the island and exotic wood from all over the world.
He uses a lot of different finishes like beeswax and orange oil, pure tung oil, mineral oil, and shellac wax polish.Kayden turns large and small bowls, platters, boxes, candle holders, vases, bottle stoppers, and flowers. All of his bowls, platters and any serving dishes are food safe.
His wooden flowers with natural stems took him forever to perfect the design and turning process but what he has now he is most proud of!
Kayden wrote - "I really hope people can appreciate my work and find it beautiful and creative".
This young man possesses a unique talent and if you like fine wood turning then he is well worth following. You can see more of Kayden’s beautiful and functional work at; www.sidestreetstudio.com
