Turned Write began in 2009 during a fateful trip to Minneapolis when Crystal Schroeder left her husband, Colin, alone in a woodworking store. He returned with a lathe and materials to make a pen or two and had decided to teach himself to turn wood. Beautiful hand turned gifts filled the stockings of family and friends that year and began to grow into an full time business. The move was made to get out of the uninsulated garage and into an actual shop in Peterson, MN in 2013. Colin continues to create everything one at a time and loves helping create long-lasting gifts and items for people’s homes and lives. His goal continues to be to help bring a little functional beauty into the lives of others and is very grateful for the support of others.
