Monthly featured Artist

Herman de Vries

"I made much of our own furniture for years, but after making some curved Queen Anne legs, I decided round was more fun than flat. A large walnut vase in a magazine was the perfect inspiration to get started. It began with spindles for a crib, and gradually morphed into more artistic pieces, My site, is basically the history of my woodturnng, which became a passion. It led to the creation of the WoW site in 2001 and formation of the Manitoba Woodturners Association in 2007."

WAM is proud to honour Herm as our first featured artist. He started our club, and has been the sparkplug that kept us running all these years.
