Harvey Meyer
Cumming, GA

Peggy SchmidHarvey Meyer is retired from a 43+ year career as a telecommunications engineer. He has been a woodworker for most of his life. After building furniture for many years, he started woodturning in 2000. As it is with most woodworkers who attempt woodturning, he stopped building furniture and now exclusively turns wood.

Most of the wood he turns is from the Atlanta area. This wood generally comes from trees downed in storms or from tree removals and would otherwise be headed to landfills or chippers. He also likes to turn exotic woods and burls. No two pieces of wood are alike and it's not until he starts turning a piece that the wood reveals its hidden beauty. He turns many types of forms and objects including bowls, platters, hollow forms, goblets, boxes, pepper mills, wine bottle stoppers, pens, etc., but his primary focus is on hollow forms.

He likes to embellish his turnings by piercing, burning, coloring, carving, and texturing. Lately, he has focused on the "basket illusion" where a turned piece attempts to resemble woven basketry. He enjoys demonstrating at woodturning clubs and teaching.  All in all, he's just having fun. He works in his studio located in the basement of his home in Dunwoody, GA. Harvey is an active member of the Georgia Association of Woodturners, Atlanta Woodturners Guild, and the American Association of Woodturners.
