Regular Meeting - David Ellsworth: Hollow Forms

March 30, 2022

Our regular monthly meeting for March will feature world renown wood turner and woodturning teacher, David Ellsworth.

David is a founding member of the American Association of Woodturners. After receiving a Masters in Fine Arts from the University of Colorado, David opened his first private woodturning studio in Boulder, Colo., in 1975 and began to develop a series of bent turning tools and the method of using them to turn thin walled hollow forms for which he is now known worldwide. His article describing his method was published in Fine Woodworking magazine in 1979.

In all, he has published more than 50 articles relating to the craft of woodturning and several books. He has operated and taught at the Ellsworth School of Woodturning since 1990.

This demonstration will focus on his methods for turning hollow forms. David's bowls and hollow forms grace the permanent collections of 43 museums.

All 2022 OPCAAW members will receive an invitation and link to the Zoom meeting. The demonstration begins at
