Turners

Turners Group

This group is composed of VWC members who have an interest in honing their skills in the use of the lathes available in our shop.  The group meets on the third Tuesday of each month, except during the summer and in December.

At each meeting the group participated in the following:

  • Show and Tell session where members display and descript their projects.
  • An auction of wood blanks that can be used in future projects
  • A demonstration of lathe operation techniques
  • A social hour after the meeting where attendees congregate whilst consuming drinks of their choice, which they had brought to the meeting

The Show and Tell, Auction and Demonstration portion of these meetings are video-taped so that all VWC Members can learn of projects and turning techniques.  These videos are made available on this website as enumerated on the left.

Members of the Turners Group also contribute to the shop operations in that they are called upon to volunteer to work on Special Projects that involve wood turning, such as fabricating turned table legs or parts of chairs that are brought to the shop for repair.
