Chuck Biggs grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated from Illinois Institute of Technology with a BSME. After spending more than thirty years with GE in engineering, sales and marketing he retired to Punta Gorda Florida in 1996.

“I had always wanted to work with my hands and upon retiring purchased a bunch of power tools and started making furniture. I soon found a love for the wood turning lathe and started making bowls and anything round.

I started the Peace River Wood Turning Club in my garage and that has turned into a 60 member very active club. We have had many professional turners over the years put on demonstrations for our group. As a member of American Woodturners Association I have conducted many training sessions myself. I have entered several wood turning shows and won several awards.

Now in my 80s I have supplied all of my relatives with all the turnings they can handle, and I am now selling a rather large collection of turnings.”
