Ted Shultz, Woodwork
As a youngster Ted, who always loved wood, whittled wooden guns. When he retired at 75, he enrolled in a wood turning workshop at SUNY Purchase which inspired him to follow his new path. For Ted, it is not only the enjoyment of developing his work, but the close association with others who are doing similar work but come from vastly different backgrounds and professions, which gives him a deep sense of pleasure. He treasures not only his own work, but the friendships that have evolved through his pursuit. For Ted, pursuing his craft enabled him to surround himself with enriching relationships.
