Spinning tops have been turned on the lathe for hundreds of years. In the past, each region had its own model toll. Spinning tops are fun to spin. A spinning top is relatively simple in design and always manages to turn in a short time. Young and old like to spin. That is why it is still a popular children’s toy.

RADIUS, the Dutch Association of Woodturners, was founded in 1994 and by now has grown to an association of 750 members. The association consists of 16 active regional sections.

 

A few members practise woodturning professionally, but most are active hobbyists. They turn their utilitarian and artistic objects at different levels according to their training, experience and interest. Several members enjoy great fame at home and abroad; their creations can be found at prominent exhibitions.

 

The association publishes a full-colour quarterly magazine called AktieRadius and holds an annual woodturning day at a central location in the Netherlands. This day features demonstrations, lectures, education and sales of woodturning supplies by various suppliers.
