Wooden Surface

Presidents Message

Hello fellow turners,

Summer is the perfect season to dive into the world of woodturning, where the long, warm days provide ample time for creative exploration and crafting. Imagine setting up your lathe outdoors, surrounded by the vibrant colors and sounds of nature. The rhythmic hum of the lathe, combined with the chirping birds and rustling leaves, creates a meditative environment, making each woodturning session a peaceful retreat. Summer's plentiful daylight means you can spend more hours perfecting your technique, experimenting with different types of wood, and creating unique, handcrafted pieces that reflect the beauty of the season.

As the temperatures rise, so does the inspiration to craft items that enhance summer living. Picture turning a set of wooden bowls perfect for serving fresh summer salads at your next backyard barbecue, or creating intricately designed candle holders to add a warm glow to your evening gatherings. The tactile satisfaction of shaping wood, coupled with the joy of seeing your creations come to life, is immensely rewarding. Woodturning in the summer not only hones your skills but also provides a wonderful way to connect with nature and produce beautiful, functional art that embodies the essence of the season.
