Neal Brand

After over 40 years of teaching mathematics at the university, I retired.  I now have more time to pursue my hobby of turning wood. When making items, I often use mathematics to help design both the item and associated jigs.  For example, I use the density of wood to determine the diameter of support spindles, such as the Tibetan spindle pictured below, based on a desired moment of inertia.

I sell items at the Denton Community Market most Saturdays from the first of April through the end of November.  Items include bowls, boxes, vases, pepper mills, spoons, spatulas, tippe tops, kururin sticks, and small animals.  If you are in the North Texas area, I hope you can stop by some Saturday.

I have an Esty site where I mostly sell 3D printed jigs used in turning and Tibetan style spindles.

I am a member of the American Association of Woodturners, Golden Triangle Woodturners, Woodturners of North Texas, and Dallas Area Woodturners. I have given several club demos, some in-person and some remotely. I also gave a demonstration at the Southwest Association of Woodturners.
