Fine Art of Woodturning
Fine Art of Woodturning

A little about the process

Nathan Hemperly is a fine art woodturner who produces collectable wood vases, bowls, urns and dyed vessels.  I collect the trees from Kansas to Washington state, bring them to my fine art woodturning shop, Marnasi Studios,  and begin the blocking and spalting process.  I want to preserve as much of the wood as possible and so I use a stabilizing process for the wood that is too soft (rotten) to use.  This wood has some great character.  Depending on the wooden vessels I'm working with, it may be left natural, dyed, carved or embellished with exotic inlay, rock, precious stone or metals.  The result is fine wood turned art that all can enjoy.
     For stabilizing punky wood try Mesquite Man's Cactus Juice, it works great.  Buy it at

Just added resin to the wood turning fun.  Burls I wasn't able to turn before, can now be saved and made into a beautiful work of art.  Hope you enjoy the resin / wood art!

Gallery 1 - The business of Marnasi Studios "IS" fine woodturning.

Nathan Hemperly, founder of the business Marnasi Studios, has been working with wood and the other products used to create these beautiful fine art wood turned pieces with the desire that you enjoy them as much as I do.  Each piece is personally designed and hand made, truely one of a kind.  Wood has such a warmth and beauty that it is just natural to pick it up.   I have been working with wood for many years and never get tired of the unique beauty each piece offers.  I truly enjoy, as well, the reaction of people when they pick up a piece of this fine art and get a bit lost in the beauty and overall character of the wood.  Some of our art friends have purchased several pieces and speak of the perfect place in their home for this new treasure.  It will indeed bring them many years of pleasure.  For purchasing a piece of art please go to the contact page and let me know which piece you like or come to one of the shows I attend and see fine woodturnings that are brand new and not posted yet..  I hope you enjoy what you see.  CLICK ON ANY PIECE of wooden art for your private tour of Marnasi Studios Fine Art Woodturning Gallery.
