Woodturning Design June 2011 IssueWelcome to Alan Carter Studio. I'm constantly updating the site and adding new pieces. Click on the different categories to see what's new. The galleries and events page is always being updated as well.


We recently moved from Lisle, IL to the mountains of Asheville, NC. It's a very exciting transition for us, but it's also meant that I've not devoted enough time to this site. A major relocation like this, especially for an artist with a studio full of equipment, materials, etc., is an all consuming exhausting process, filled with a million details. Over the next several weeks I'll be updating the site, adding new work, and streamlining its appearance.

Our new address, at least for now, is 103 Burlwood Ct., apt. C, Asheville, NC 28804. We're building a new home and studio, but it'll be several months before we can move in. In the meantime, I've secured a small workspace and will continue to produce new artwork, mostly on a smaller scale, and am trying out some new ideas. Stay tuned for the results.

I do have a number of pieces available and if you're interested in purchasing or would like more information, email me at apcarter@sbcglobal.net or call me at 630-390-8821.

You can also check out my 3 woodturning videos on Youtube, thanks to the very cool gang at thegeekgroup in Grand Rapids, MI. You can see them at
