Kelly Dunn

“Kelly Dunn of Hawai’i is a full time professional wood turner who also happens to be the WoW resident philosopher. Besides gracing WoW with photos of traditional Hawaiian forms Kelly also starts thought provoking discussions on a variety of topics.

Kelly is in his fourth decade of turning and like many other turners had no experience but a brief exposure in shop class. Kelly says he has been fortunate to have trained with many turners. Kelly helped to found both AAW turning clubs on the big island of Hawai’i.

A master of many of the traditional Hawai’ian forms as seen in his cover photo; Kelly has demonstrated around the world. He is blessed to have access to a wide variety of beautiful tropical timbers which he has mastered.WoW celebrates Kelly Dunn as the Featured Artist of the Month for October 2016.”

The World of Woodturners site (WoW) originated in November, 2001. At its start it was the only interactive site where woodturners could post photos and descriptions of their work and engage in discussion about their art. WoW members think of themselves as a family. They are artists who have become friends and who willingly share their talents and skills. This is a place where the novice freely mixes with the seasoned professional in an atmosphere of shared respect. No one is anonymous and everyone uses their own name. From this venue has arisen some incredible art, some of which can be seen in the public gallery. Enjoy this display of fine work. Access to the site itself is at no cost, by obtaining a membership invitation from an existing WoW family member or contacting site administration at Include your name and a brief description of your woodturning experience in the message.

The site is owned and maintained by the World of Woodturners, Inc., a non-profit organization.

Site design and hosting is a partnership between Webenology, LLC and Informanix Technology Group Inc.
