Bob Hoffman's Tree Treasures

When Bob moved to what he now calls home -- La Veta, Colorado -- he had just retired from a long career at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.  Fishing, golf and building a new home on School Creek Road was the plan.  Bob realized that a retirement life of doing things that he truly enjoyed was the life he had always been cut out for.

With the ranch home established and most of work that comes with that life routine, Bob’s wife asked him to try a “hobby”.  A friend had tried to interest him in wood turning for several years and another friend had an unused lathe in the corner of his barn, and so Bob’s trial hobby became an experiment that has turned into many beautiful vessels for others to enjoy.

From the first, very small oak bowl made from a piece of firewood taken from his own property on School Creek to a variety of shapes and sizes turned from wood from the La Veta area and from New Mexico, Texas and South Dakota -- the world of wood turning has captured his imagination, skill and new-found artistic desire.
