Tim Elliott was fascinated by his first exposure
to wood turning in 7th grade shop class. This
interest lay dormant for about 10 years before
Tim was offered a chance to buy a rickety
entry-level lathe for about $100. Since then,
there’s been no looking back.
Tim creates one-of-a-kind turnings ranging
from utilitarian tableware to delicate hollow
forms. He is well-known for decorative
chip-carved embellishments on his more
elaborate pieces. These can be repetitive
geometric motifs or organic forms, sometimes
incorporating interactive elements such as
mazes or hidden shapes.
Tim lives and turns in Newfields, NH.
