At True Creations Woodturning, we focus on three areas:

True Creations Drop Spindles


Fiber Tools

For over 14 years, we have been designing, testing, perfecting and producing a line of spinning tools. We sell our drop spindles and other tools through fiber shops around the country. Our spindles include drop spindles and supported spindles such as Russian, Orenburg and Tibetan. Other tools used in the spinning process include nostipennes, niddy-noddies, support spindle bowls, wpi (wraps per inch) gauges and orifice hooks. The tools are made out of a variety of FSC® certified North American hardwoods and exotic hardwoods from around the world. The Forest Stewardship Council is an international organization that helps manage the world’s forests by setting standards, certification and labeling of forest products. If you are a fiber shop and want to increase your sales by offering your customers fabulous handmade spinning tools and high performing drop sindles, please contact us to discuss our wholesale program.

Woodturning Services

Second, we offer custom woodturning services. If you are a homeowner, contractor, an architect or a woodworker looking for an experienced woodturner to help you complete your special project, you came to the right place! We can turn just about anything ranging from tiny knobs for a jewelry box to 8 foot porch columns. Our specialty is architectural restoration projects. Over the years, we have turned replacement balusters, newel posts, chair parts, beer taps, table legs and parts for spinning wheels. Even though our studio is located in a suburb of Rochester, NY in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region, we have done projects for customers all over the country. Give us a call or send an email to discuss your project. We’d love to partner with you.





Woodturning Education

The third area that we focus on is education and learning. We offer private woodturning instruction and classes in our fully equipped studio. We demonstrate woodturning for clubs and write articles for major woodturning publications. Visit our Learn to Turn to download articles, read tips and see our calendar. Also, check out our Facebook Page to see what we are working on. There is always something interesting on one of our lathes for you to see or learn about.

True Creations Woodturning is one leg of our True Creations empire. The second leg is Kathy’s True Creations Quilting (tcquilting.com) long arm quilting service and on-line shop. The third leg is my on-line shop for fiber tools, True Creations Spindles (tcspindles.com). Check them out too.
