Monthly featured Artist

Robert Woodward

Like many current woodturners, Robert Woodward dabbled with turning in the 1980’s, but then life and career took precedence. Returning to turning in late 2015, Robert has developed a large body of innovative, high quality work. Having lived in Hawaii for many years, his turnings are heavily influenced by the history and aesthetic of Hawaiian woodworking, but not exclusively; his laminated work with native woods is worth a look!

The WoW family is fortunate to have Robert as an active and contributing member and is pleased to honor him as the Artist of the Month for March 2021.

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.
