Hugh Ross – Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design

Hugh Ross

Hugh attended the University of New Brunswick, completing a degree in forestry, then moved to Port Hawkesbury to pursue a career in Industrial Forestry in which he had the opportunity to work in all aspects of forestry. Taking up woodworking as a hobby was a natural thing to do and Hugh discovered wood turning which has become his passion. It is very rewarding to start with a raw piece of wood and see it transformed into something beautiful and/or useful. Now retired, Hugh has time to devote to wood turning and to make his work available to those who enjoy turned objects.
