About the Author:

Joshua Salesin has produced a variety of turned, carved and decorative wood vessels for many years. A particular focus of his work is the uncommon craft of ornamental turning. His interest in vacuum kiln drying originated from a desire to create fine hand-cut threaded boxes, which require tolerances that leave little room for wood movement.
