Doug’s Turnings in Taneytown, Maryland makes beautiful wood bowls, ornaments and more.


Doug Heck is a self-taught Carroll County wood turner, enjoying the beautiful wood that God has given us. God puts the beauty in and Doug get to show it off. Doug began turning wood in 2004, finding that woodturning was to become his new passion. Most of the wood he turns is from the Maryland area and from trees that must come down or have already fallen. It’s hard for him to see a fallen tree on the side of the road and not imagine what could be created from that wood. He cuts and hauls most of the wood that he uses. He also turns most of it green, meaning while the wood is still wet, which is a whole process in itself. Doug finds relaxation in the craft and enjoys reading books on the topic and researching techniques others have used that help tackle the many challenges involved in turning wood.
