Roy Yarger is a wood artist in Savannah, Georgia.

ARTIST STATEMENT : Most of the wood I use comes from trees that have been felled due to disease, storms, or development, and destined to be hauled to a landfill.  Woodturning is one of the ways that we, as individuals, can preserve a little of a tree that once lived and stood proud.  I try to give each piece of wood a new life.
