About us

Boston Woodturning Salem, MA. 24 New Derby Street "Artist Row" 01970.

Boston Woodturning creates one of a kind hand crafted fine art as well as usable utilitarian pieces from a variety of local and reclaimed wood. The wood we use is from all over The Greater Boston Area. What we do is cut logs from felled trees and wood turn them into fine art and decretive pieces as well as some functional pieces. Boston Woodturning also offers private woodturning lessons and group woodturning classes to anyone who wants to learn the fine art of woodturning all tools and supplies are provided for the duration of the lesson/class.

Woodturning is a form of woodworking that is used to create wooden hand crafted objects on a wood lathe. Each piece goes through a process till it reaches the end result, some are made by planning the piece and executing the work while other pieces are made solely from what the result is once I’ve started (without thought) The hands do all the work. Both ways produce excellent results and are very different end pieces that are high quality decorative items.

We support the art and craft of woodturning as well as many other mediums. Boston Woodturning supports artists locally as well as connected to artists and wood turners worldwide. Boston Woodturning online gallery offers it's visitors options to share, view, learn, and purchase available items.
