Welcome to Wah-Tie Woodturning. Here you will find handcrafted items by artist and author Joaquin Juatai. Emphasizing nature, but acknowledging the marriage of natural wood and modern materials, Joaquin’s work accentuates natural edges and imperfections and contrasts them with modern materials and techniques.

Custom orders for bespoke items are always welcome! Contact Joaquin for your personal piece of natural beauty!

Bespoke: adjective made for a particular customer or user.

the wood was chosen and the 
design turned for specific individuals.

Here at Wah-tie Woodturning, one of our favorite things to make is something for someone. There is nothing more personal, or that says more about an individual, than a bespoke piece of original artwork, whether it be a pen, a lidded box, or your favorite salad bowl.

One of my favorite things to make is a piece from wood that has meaning to the client: for example, a customer provided a log of aspen wood to create a funerary urn for his beloved dog, named Aspen. Taking raw material, such as a log, and creating artwork that has personal meaning is the very spirit of the word “bespoke.”

To begin the process of having a unique piece of custom wood-turned artwork created specifically for you, or as a gift for that special someone, contact Joaquin today! Bespoke items make terrific stocking stuffers, or gifts for birthdays and other special occasions!
