Monthly featured Artist

Paul Millo

“Paul Millo is a retired police officer from Texas. He began his woodworking career more than 30 years ago when his father gave him an old Craftsman table saw. In 1992 Paul bought his first lathe and has been turning ever since.

A self-taught turner, Paul likes to use locally downed trees to create art for others to enjoy. He donates his work to his church and enjoys making gifts for children undergoing cancer therapies in local hospitals.

Paul is a member of the AAW and the Gulf Coast Woodturners where he has the duties of being the club’s photographer. An active church goer Paul also likes to listen to blue grass music.

WoW is pleased to celebrate Paul Millo for his service as part of the Thin Blue Line and for his wood turned art as Featured Artist of the Month for December 2017.”

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.
