About The Artist…

When Donald Maloney retired from 30 years in the lumber business in 1994 he followed his dream to become a woodturner. He bought a small lathe and with a few videos began turning some bowls and wine bottle stoppers which he sold at local fairs and wine festivals. As word got around that he could turn he was contacted by several local millwork companies. From there, with the purchase of a lot of machinery and a $45,000 copy lathe the Maloney Latheworks took off. In less than 5 years he had all the work he could handle with some help from his wife, Harriet.

He continued to improve his artistic skills, attend many woodturning symposiums all over the US and even Ireland. As a result he was soon selling his art works at art and craft shows.

Don sells his work at the Aldie Mill Art Show, Burwell Morgan Mill Art Show, Bluemont’s Art in the Foothills art show as well as having items for sale at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, Va., Bluemont Vineyards and the Fire House Gallery & Shop in Berryville, VA. Don is one of the founding members of the soon to be opened Gateway Gallery and Gift Shop which will be located west of the town of Round Hill at on of the best known tourist stops Hill High Orchards which dates back to a favorite stop for D.C. residents out for a weekend in the country

Three years ago Don sold his architectural woodturning business and now concentrates solely on his art work. He has taught many others to turn and is active in the Capitol Area Woodturners, Apple Valley Woodturners and recently helped start a new club which named Catoctin Area Woodturners in Loudoun County, VA.

Don also enjoys donating pieces for auction for charitable purposes.

Don’s work was recently recognized in a hard cover book titled “Reflections of Clarke County Virginia” featuring over 100 area artists.

Don & Harriet are members of a co-op gallery, The Gateway Gallery and Gift Shop, located on Rt. 7 just west of Round Hill, VA in the Hill High (Orchards) building.
