David Ellsworth

David started the woodworking program at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, Colorado in 1974, and the following year opened his first private woodturning studio in Boulder, Colorado. It was during the mid-1970’s that David developed a series of bent turning tools and the methods required for making the thin-walled hollow forms of which he is known worldwide.

David is the founding member of the American Association of Woodturners, of which he was president from 1986-1991, and its first Honorary Lifetime Member.
