Redefined Wood: Claude LeBel has been turning wood for approximately five years. He is an active member of the Valley Woodturners in Ottawa and acts as an assistant instructor for the beginner’s woodturning course offered by the club.
Claude has studied under world-renowned woodturners such as Mike Mahoney and Jimmy Clewes. Claude is passionate about his hobby and his artistic flare adds to the beauty and uniqueness of his creations. Form and function are important elements in his designs because he is a believer that not only should his creations be nice to look at, they should be used and enjoyed as well.
With only five years experience at woodturning, Claude considers his newly found passion a “work in progress”. However the beauty and creativity of his pieces would suggest otherwise.
