Al Bach is a retired orthopedic surgeon and has engaged in artistic pursuits since childhood.  Originally studying architecture after high school, he changed courses and entered medical school.  This led to a career in orthopedic hand surgery in Seattle, Washington and in Colorado Springs.  During those 34 years he was constantly drawing, sculpting or building furniture as a diversion.  After acquiring a 1940’s era lathe from his father in 2002, he started doing woodturnings.  Al established Skyway Bowlworks in 2012 and has exhibited and sold his work.
