Brandon (BJ) Wadsworth is a wood turner who first began turning pens on a lathe with his father and a family friend 7 years ago as a hobby. He receives his inspiration from the woods he works on, and becomes excited when he sees the finished product and the beauty in the materials he uses.
In 2015, BJ officially declared his own business; BJ’s Wood Creations, an accomplishment of which he is extremely proud. He has won many awards at local county fairs, and various other local festivals, where he routinely does demonstrations and sells his work.
BJ lives in a SASI group home, where a woodshop has been added in the basement so that he can pursue his business. He not only does wood turning but he also does wood burning, painting and the making of latch hook rugs.
