Lyndal Anthony

Lyndal Anthony began woodturning in earnest in 2006 after a job change. He was a precision machinist for 30+ years and a switch to a high school Industrial Technology teacher necessitated the need to learn how to turn so he could teach his students how to use the lone lathe in the school shop. A Saturday bowl turning class at Woodcraft got him firmly hooked. From there it was on to the Quad Cities Woodturners Club in Rock Island, IL for mentoring and he hasn’t looked back. His album on Wow is full of a broad range of turnings and well worth a look.

The WoW family is fortunate to have Lyndal as an active and contributing member and is pleased to honor him as the Artist of the Month for October 2020.

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.
