Monthly featured Artist

Emiliano Achaval

Emiliano is a turner from Maui, Hawaii, and studio is the meeting place of his local club. He is active in providing members of his club with lessons, and regularly has visitors stopping by for a lesson or to watch him turn some Hawaiian Koa or Milo that are always on his lathe.

Emiliano writes for Woodturning UK magazine, and is a member of Lucid Woodturners, a website-community dedicated to teaching and helping turners how to do live remote demos. He will be a demonstrator at the 2019 AAW symposium in Raleigh NC.

Emiliano says "I have turned for 23 years and learned that I will never master woodturning. You can learn something every day, even from a visitor that just started turning. Every day in the shop is different, a new challenge, a new job, a new project. Having this much fun should be illegal!"

WoW is proud to feature Emiliano Achaval as Artist of the Month for May, 2019

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 wowadmin@shaw.ca. 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.
