AAW 2011 Honorary Lifetime Member: John Hill


John started turning wood in 1993 after observing a turning demonstration at a craft fair. He joined a local woodturning chapter and in 1999, with seven other turners, formed a chapter in Asheville, now one of the largest in the world. John is the flamboyant auctioneer at AAW’s annual symposium. He served on the AAW Board from 2004 to 2006 where he changed the face of the AAW, conceptualizing and creating many of the member and chapter benefits and programs. His numerous contributions include: the AAW Youth Program, Chapters Best Practices subcommittee, the Professional Outreach Program, the online sales tool, AAW endowment, and the insurance programs for medical, property, and liability. John negotiated deep discounts on lathes and tools for the AAW and its chapters and secured resources for many woodturning educational establishments, both in the United States and internationally. The AAW is a vital organization today, in large part because of John’s untiring and continuing contributions.
