Jamie Donaldson has been turning wood for thirty years and has studied with a who’s who of woodturning artists including Rude Osolnik, David Ellsworth, John Jordan, Ron Fleming, Al Stirt, Ray Key and Del Stubbs just to name a few. Jamie has shared his knowledge as a teacher at John C. Campbell Folk School for 14 years and has demonstrated all around the country, at 5 AAW Symposia and in New Zealand.

WoW is lucky to have Jamie as a member of the Cover Selection Team, and to see the work that he shares frequently with the WoW family.

We are proud to celebrate Jamie Donaldson as Featured Artist of the Month for September 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 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.
