Monthly featured Artist

Keith Hastings

WoW is pleased to present Keith Hastings as Artist of the Month for November, 2022. Keith has been a valued member of WoW for many years and has graced the pages of WoW with his wonderful tripod series of bowls and vessels, and his artistic segmented works.

Keith is a New Zealand native, a retired engineer, and began his woodturning hobby in 2008. The quality and variety of his work demonstrate his love of the craft and his innate skills. One of his greatest pleasures is to work with the wife variety of splendid woods that are native to his country. We are honored to have him in our community of turners.

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, Inc and Informanix Technology Group Inc.
