A professional woodturner, Kurt enjoys the continuum of woodturning from making his own turning tools to photographing his finished turnings. He keeps his turnings diverse in an effort to explore fully the craft and the medium. As frequent demonstrator and instructor on all facets of woodturning, he particularly enjoys teaching tool sharpening, workholding, and advanced penmaking.
Kurt writes two regular feature columns for Woodturning Design Magazine and a series for Woodturning Magazine. He is one of the five Council Members of the Pen Makers Guild, past Chairman of the Rochester Woodworkers Society, and a member of the Board of Directors and currently Vice President of the American Association of Woodturners.
His work has been featured in the American Association of Woodturners "Rounding The Corners" Exhibit and published in Woodturning Design, Woodturning magazine, American Woodturner, Pen World, and Stylus magazines. You can see the range of his work on www.kurthertzog.com, and on www.penmakersguild.com.
