Boston Woodturning is a working studio and art gallery. Woodturning is the action of sculpting and shaping wood on a lathe using chisels and other hand tools. Woodworkers and artists use a lathe and chisels to "turn" wood into various objects both functional and artistic. This art form goes back hundreds of years. We use mostly local greenwood to create fine art objects and utilitarian pieces as well as accept commissioned projects.

Boston Woodturning offers free Woodturning demonstrations every Thursday from 3-6pm but you can stop in anytime throughout the week to see what projects are being worked on. Additionally, Boston Woodturning also offers lessons and workshops that you can pay to learn the craft (Individual and groups). You can purchase as little as an hour or several hours over different days. Currently our students range from young kids, young adults, adults and woodworking professional. All tools and supplies are provided for the duration and you can keep what you make.

In the gallery section of Boston Woodturning you can also find other works of art such as paintings, photograph, reclaimed art, and much more. What we do is feature local artists who produce work that is relevant to wood in some way additionally the artwork compliments each other even though it may come from different artists, Tommy Gagnon selects and hangs each piece of art as well as builds displays for the artwork.

We connect with local businesses and city institutions to educate and share Woodturning as an art form. Lastly over the last year we are organizing Boston Woodturning so that we can submit to the American Association of Woodturners a new chapter for the entire North of Boston! We think being based in Salem, Ma will provide a great location for woodturners all over the North Shore.
