Bruce Markwardt was a founding member of the AAW and now lives south of Detroit. Here’s what Bruce has to say about his woodworking experience:
Over the years I made everything from pens to Windsor chairs to Shaker candle stands. I got away from turning for several years and pursued other interests. I got back into turning a couple of years ago when I took over some space in our walkout basement. I retired at the end of 2011 and the lathe is a belated retirement gift to myself. The versatility of the the Sweet 16 was one of its main attractions. I have a very small shop and the Standard Bed Sweet 16 is a perfect fit. It does everything I need and then some!
