Writer Profile for David Reed Smith
David Reed SmithHampstead, MD
David Reed Smith lives in Hampstead, Maryland, which is northwest of Baltimore, with his wife, a semi-failure to launch son, and a part-time cat.
He retired in 2013. When he was forced to work for a living he took X-Rays, mostly in the ER of a small hospital. Besides woodturning he makes tatting shuttles. He also runs (if you’re generous with speed requirements), hikes, kayaks, reads, and takes naps.
He began turning seriously in 1984 with a Myford ML-8 lathe and a weekend lesson with Russ Zimmerman. He now has a Ulery bowl lathe, a OneWay 1024, and a Powermatic 3520B and a basement full of other tools. He is an unrepentant tool junkie. More than one person has asked if he ever actually turns anything or just makes jigs.
Visit his web site, it has more than 60 older articles and a gallery of turned items.
He welcomes questions, comments, and suggestions via email.
