Shuler practices a segmented technique, in which he attaches small pieces of wood to a larger block and then turns the piece. He began using this technique in 1985 to produce "a complex three-dimensional symmetry and…fluidity or motion of it's own." Instead of relying on the natural variations of color within the block of wood, Shuler creates more geometric, and yet unexpected patterns. He works in Santa Cruz, California and likes to teach woodturning, especially to children.
