Gere Flick is a resident of Linwood Park in Vermilion, having moved here after retiring as an insurance executive for forty years. He has been married to his wife, Carol for over 55 years and they have three children and 5 grandchildren.
Gere has always enjoyed woodworking and took up wood turning after retirement.
He became interested in exotic woods while serving in Vietnam, where the local craftsmen turned wood goblets and other objects from amboyna wood.
He mainly turns small pieces such as pens, bowls, and, his favorite ~ kaleidoscopes, in which he uses beach glass he and Carol find on the Linwood Beach, and they’re turned from Lake Erie driftwood!
