Dick Rochester retired after serving 26 years with the Tiffin, Ohio Fire Department. Since that time he has tried his hand at carving, lapidary, stained glass, diachroic jewelry and now he seems to have found his niche turning wooden bowls. Since he spends six months a year in Florida, he has access to many exotic woods, including rosewood, camphor, Norfolk Island pine and mahogany, to mention just a few. But Ohio woods still form a large part of his inventory.
Rochester, or “Roc” as he is known is over 80, but he shows no signs of slowing down. Stop by the gallery and take a look at his beautiful woodwork, and buy one because there's no greater reward, in heaven or on earth, than making an old man happy.
