Monthly featured Artist

Brad Adams


Brad Adams is a full time professional turner from Benicia, California. Brad makes good use of the diseased, displaced or storm damaged timbers that would otherwise end up in a landfill or fireplace to create his art.

To Brad each piece of wood is unique and offers its own working characteristics. But coaxing the wood to reveal its inner beauty is what makes woodturning enjoyable and rewarding for him.

Originally a farm boy from Illinois Brad worked in fisheries biology and computer networking before finding his passion as a woodturner.

WoW celebrates Brad Adams as the Featured Artist of the Month for July 2016.

The World of Woodturners site (WoW) originated in November, 2001. At its start it was the only interactive site where woodturners could post photos and descriptions of their work and engage in discussion about their art. WoW members think of themselves as a family. They are artists who have become friends and who willingly share their talents and skills. This is a place where the novice freely mixes with the seasoned professional in an atmosphere of shared respect. No one is anonymous and everyone uses their own name. From this venue has arisen some incredible art, some of which can be seen in the public gallery. Enjoy this display of fine work. Access to the site itself is at no cost, by obtaining a membership invitation from an existing WoW family member or contacting site administration at wowadmin@shaw.ca. Include your name and a brief description of your woodturning experience in the message.

The site is owned and maintained by the World of Woodturners, Inc., a non-profit organization.

Site design and hosting is a partnership between Webenology, LLC and Informanix Technology Group Inc.
