I'm Rob Sheffield, a wood turner located in the north Georgia foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. I am passionate about my craft and hope you will enjoy exploring my website galleries of segmented and natural hand turned vessels. Also, check out my professional grade Wood Lathe Steady Rests, made with the highest quality materials and designed to provide exceptional function.
Segmented WoodTurnings are constructed from carefully cut pieces of wood that are glued into rings. The woodturner is able to manipulate the pieces of wood to produce a mosaic of contrasting color and limitless form bound only by the artist’s creativity.
Natural WoodTurnings are created from a solid piece of wood. The inimitable properties embodied in this abundant medium ultimately reveal an expression of the wood, the artist, and our creator.
The Sheffield WoodTurning professional grade wood lathe steady rest is designed to fit your 24", 22", 20", 18", 16" or 12" swing lathe. The steady rest is an essential tool for the wood turner, helping reduce vibration caused by the natural flexibility of wood. This multipurpose tool provides support for bowls, hollow forms and spindle work, and will greatly increase safety for the wood turner.
