Palo Coleman

Woodworking Instructor

Palo Coleman is a wood turner and builder, with a turning studio at his home in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After studying under Alan Hark, Palo has developed his own intuitive approach to the wood turning process. He specializes in reviving historical tools and techniques and in reclaiming and salvaging wood that would otherwise go to waste. He believes that each piece of wood has a story to express. In addition to his turning activities, Palo is also involved in the tiny-house-building movement.

His work has been featured at the Fuller Craft Museum, the Los Angeles Craft Museum, and the Empty Spaces Project in Putnam, CT. Please learn more about Palo’s work and view examples at
