His segmented work is eye candy for everyone in the WoW family.WoW celebrates Robin Costelle as the Featured Artist of the Month for August 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
