Don Geiger was born in Gainesville, Florida in 1953 and currently resides on ten acres near Newberry, Florida. He has been woodworking most of his life and started woodturning in 1999. He openly admits that woodturning is now his passion.
Don usually turns wood that is obtained locally and doesn’t have to pay for it. He and fellow woodturning buddies help each other harvest wood from trees that are already down and would otherwise be burned or put into a land fill. He and his buddies are frequently asked: “What type of wood did you turn that piece out of?” The reply is usually, “Free!” He has turned numerous natural edge bowls, smooth edge bowls, lidded vessels, hollow forms, and Ikebana vases.
