Woodturning is a type of woodworking that uses a lathe to create wooden objects in a variety of shapes and designs. It differs from other forms of woodworking in that as each piece is being produced the wood is moved (turned) while the lathe remains stationary. Woodturning originated in Egypt around the 13th century and evolved over the centuries as technical knowledge and tool capabilities advanced. Today, many common woodturning pieces such as baseball bats, chess pieces and pepper mills are mass produced using modern machinery. Still, for a high-quality, distinctive woodturning to enhance the interior or exterior of your Victorian or custom-built home, there’s nothing like a hand-crafted piece from a master woodturning artisan.
