Sonny Meyers (also known as Tony) has worked at the House of Myrtlewood, Coos Bay, Oregon now 40 years at the end of April 2014. He has cut logs into lumber needed for items for about 25 of those years. Along with taking care of the drying process after he and a few other workers have marked up lumber before all the roughing out to band sawing, and he has done some of the finish turning.
Finally he purchased a large lathe for his metal shop and has now changed over to the Powermatic 3520B and has been able to be turned loose on all the items and sizes and shapes he has wanted to turn over the years. His favorite are his pens but does enjoy the challenge of making boxes.
Kind of a quiet guy, always listening to learn more about wood and is willing to help others in their projects.
Sonny in his shop!
