Monthly featured Artist

Rob Price

Like many a turner, Rob started out making furniture 20 years ago and stumbled upon turning when he bought a small lathe in 2011 to make legs for an end table that he was building. Taken by the immediacy of turning he was hooked and has since devoted his limited shop time to learning to turn. Over the last 9 years Rob has progressed quickly and has developed a very keen sense for form, finish and presentation, as evidenced by his album on WoW and on his personal website.

The WoW family is fortunate to have Rob as an active and contributing member and is pleased to honor him as the Artist of the Month for May 2020.



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.
