Programs are presented to inspire and educate our members on a variety of topics related to woodturning. Our monthly meetings feature demonstrations via Zoom from our own club members, from guest turners from other clubs, and from professional turners. Topics are selected from the interests expressed by current members, working toward benefiting turners of all levels, from novices to our most experienced turners.
Our focus is on good technique with attention to safety within the context of a particular project. Some recent demonstrations have been a Calabash bowl, a beaded lidded box, assessing and cutting burls, a platter with 2 embellishment techniques, and turning burls.
For in person meetings, we also have a wood raffle and Show and Tell of recent projects.
Every other year we host a professional turner to demonstrate on a weekend, either in person or via Zoom. This year we featured Eric Lofstrom from Washington in April. On the opposite years, we plan a Demonstration Day fundraiser with 4-5 local turners offering a day long demonstration series with raffles and auctions of turning related items.
We participate in community activities such as Marstons Mills Village Day, mentoring of youth, and in shows and sales.
