Don Maloney


My background in woodturning has been as a professional production turner for 15 years. As a result I find myself doing utilitarian types of turning. I like to turn for use and most of my turnings reflect just that. You take what the piece of wood gives you for an end result of form and function that is useful as well as pleasing to the eye.
