Jarrod Dahl has been working with wood professionally since 1996 and currently makes and sells his handcrafts online at woodspirithandcraft.com. He teaches handcraft both nationally and internationally. His main focus is woodturning using a foot powered lathe and carving spoons with axe and knife.
He has studied and researched older work in museum archives in US, Sweden and the UK, which has been a very influential part of his inspiration as a craftsperson. Jarrod brings extensive knowledge of harvesting natural materials, the use of hand tools, and a deeper philosophical, historical and pragmatic approach to handcrafts to his work and his workshops.
Jarrod Dahl is one of the world’s leading experts on pole lathe turning. He has had a deep interest in historical turning from around the world. In 2014 Jarrod went to Sweden to do museum research in the archive collections at the Boras Museum to study locking lidded boxes. He visited private collections and met Svening Svenningson, author and expert on the history of wood turning in the Boras area.
During his research he gained insight on how to turn these boxes out of green wood, in the traditional way. Back home in the United States, he began to recreate these objects. Jarrod will share his research and current work in a slide show presentation as well as give a demonstration on a traditional pole lathe. Some historical boxes and his own work will be on display.
