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 into turning blanks and turn them into objects of fine art and functional pieces.

Boston Woodturning also offers its community private woodturning lessons or group woodturning classes. Anyone who wants to learn the fine art of woodturning may book a time slot. All tools and supplies are provided for the duration of the lesson/class. Students can keep what they make; you can make a wide variety of projects.

Woodturning is a form of woodworking that is used to create turned objects on a wood lathe. You can turn all types of wood, I specialize in turning greenwood. I also make my own blanks from logs for later use or sale. 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 the motion and movements when in the creative zone! Both ways produce excellent results and are very different end pieces.

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.
