DW Montville
Artistic Woodturning

A mechanical engineer by training and profession, I’ve always had an overriding passion for art. My medium of choice is wood, and woodturning in particular. One of my earliest interests is segmented turning. However, I now explore all varieties of artistic woodturning. My engineering training is useful in developing new methods for segmentation, texturing, piercing and many other forms of artistic expression with wood and color.
