Woodturning Design June 2011 IssueWelcome to Alan Carter Studio. After many frustrating months, we are finally settled in our new home and studio in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.

Relocating from the Chicago area has been a challenging, exciting adventure. It's also been an all-consuming process that has severely limited my ability to produce new work and keep this website updated.

Now that my studio is up and running at full speed, I'm developing a number of new designs. I've started posting photos of new pieces and I'm working on some significant changes to the website itself, including the ability to purchase work directly from the site.

In the meantime, I 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

"Goblets with thin stems"
"Suspended vessels"
