About Me

At this moment, ArtOfTurning.com is a one man show.

Hi! My name is Andrew and I’m the owner and curator of Art Of Turning.

Scroll down to learn more about me and this great website for woodturners and admirers alike.

Combining Art & Education Since 2019

Art Of Turning is a new website for woodturners and admirers of the craft.

I am working to build a community where all woodturners, regardless of skill level or expertise, can showcase their work.

With that in mind, I have created a gallery to display the wood turnings of everyone who wishes to submit a piece and say a few words about it.

This is a corner of the internet where everybody can share and discuss woodturning.

I hope you’ll feel at home here.

Why I Love Woodturning


I find joy in woodturning for several reasons. Firstly, it is a form of creative expression where I can take a piece of wood and transform it into a unique and functional object, such as a bowl, vase, or even a pen.

This process allows me to tap into my creativity and feel a sense of accomplishment as I bring my vision and the vision of my customers to life.

Additionally, woodturning is a form of relaxation and mindfulness, as it requires focus and concentration on the task at hand.

Working with my hands and utilizing a variety of tools and techniques also provides a sense of satisfaction and a break from the distractions of daily life.

Finally, woodturning is a way to connect with nature and appreciate the natural beauty of wood.

Each piece of wood has its own unique characteristics and grain patterns and turning it into a functional object allows me to highlight these qualities and create something truly special.

Overall, woodturning is a fulfilling and enjoyable hobby that combines creativity, relaxation, and a connection with nature.

My Story

From a young age, I’ve always been drawn to the art of woodworking.

I was captivated by the intricate grain patterns, the rich colors, and the endless possibilities of what could be created from this natural material.

As I grew older, my fascination with woodworking grew, and I was determined to learn the craft myself.

Comletely self taught, I started experimenting with various woodworking techniques, trying my hand at furniture building, carving, and other woodworking skills.

But it was when I discovered woodturning that I found my true passion.

The process of transforming a rough block of wood into a beautifully turned object on a lathe fascinated me.

The sheer joy of creating functional and artistic pieces with firewood is incomparable.

I immersed myself in learning different woodturning techniques, studying different types of wood, and honing my skills through trial and error.

Woodturning has become more than just a hobby for me. It’s a form of self-expression, a way to connect with nature, and a means to create unique and meaningful pieces that bring joy to others.

I am grateful for the opportunity to pursue my passion for woodturning and continue to explore and push the boundaries of this timeless craft.
