About Us

Simmonds Woodturning was established in 1986, continuing the Thompson family tradition, beginning in 1840 in Upper Canada otherwise known as London Ontario now.  We are a custom woodturning shop that produces high quality wooden porch posts, newels, balusters, columns, kitchen island legs and table legs.

Restoration work occupies the majority of our shop schedule.

Working closely with design architects, project managers and home owners, we provide exact reproductions of architectural components for their century and historical homes.

Simmonds Woodturning Ships All Over The U.S. and Canada 

Our staff uses turning techniques that keep tradition at heart while maintaining a modern and efficient process. 

Skilled Woodturners have honed their skills with age old techniques passed down from masters of a previous day.

Each blank is produced with modern woodworking equipment then is individually hand turned and hand sanded to our clients requirements without the use of tracer lathes or CNC machinery.

We also provide an extensive collection of stock patterns for you to choose from. We pride ourselves in the high quality of the work we do and our reputation of providing customer service that is second to none.
