Ornamental Turning

An online resource for "OT" enthusiasts

" "



During the early part of this millennium, for nearly ten years, during a time when precious little information on ornamental turning was available to OT enthusiasts, OrnamentalTurning.net provided the definitive internet resource for all manner of details related to the art of ornamental turning.

This compendium maintained a comprehensive listing of OT books, magazines, catalogues, articles, publications, audio and video, vendors of machinery and tooling, calendar of events and news archive, museum and gallery exhibitions, OT organizations, forums and turners, as well as a detailed accounting of ornamental turning's fascinating history and its most notable practitioners dating back to the early 13th century.

In 2015, with the recent availability of other sites with similar material, this website is no longer needed.

Wishing you all the best in pursuit and practice of uncommon endeavors of beauty. –jls
