Our Mission

The Association’s purpose is to foster a wider understanding and appreciation for woodturning as a craft and as an art form. The Association intends to offer such services as a website, introductory classes, youth education, video programs, library, seminars, clinics, shows and exhibits. Wood turning offers amazing results using a lathe and sharp gouges of many shapes and sizes to create bowls, pens, ornaments, vases, and wonderful stuff that may not at first appear round. And it can be carved, pierced, burned, painted and finished with oils, varnishes and waxes of various “secret” formulas. Join us and become addicted to this art and craft. Our members range from beginners to very skilled and are ready to share their wood turning skills with others.
