Monthly featured Artist

Nancy Bowman

Several years ago, Nancy’s journey as a woodworker came to a crossroads when she was offered the choice of a bandsaw or a lathe for her birthday gift from her husband. She chose the lathe but didn’t “figure it out” for a few more years while it collected dust. A trip through Nancy’s album clearly shows that she finally cracked the code and has not looked back!

The WoW family is fortunate to have Nancy as an active and contributing member and is pleased to honor her as the Artist of the Month for September 2022.









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.
