About Us

Dave Hickman and Andrew Gauldin form the Father/Son team that is MyTurnings.


Having tried my hand at turning once on a friends lathe I was hooked.  That interest  lied dormant until my wife’s gift of a lathe for our 5 th anniversary gave me the opportunity to begin turning in earnest. Over the years I have made many items for the home and gifts. I am a member of the Apple Valley Woodturners  and  of the American Association of Woodturners (AAW). I enjoy teaching and mentoring those new to my avocation. My handiwork is available through this website. See the available items or ask for a special order.


Inspired by my fathers passion for turning I began some simple projects. During a demo of pen-making at Apple Valley Woodturners I saw the opportunity to make some spending cash while in High School. I continued to turn while in college and grad school and still enjoy turning as often as possible.
