Our club started with just 11 members in 1996. We have grown to over 40 members, but our goals are still the same. Our mission is to foster awareness and appreciation of the skill and artistry of wood turning through continued education for our members and the public at large.
We hold a monthly meeting in Abington on the fourth Tuesday of the month (except July). Our meetings include general business, coffee break social, a demonstration, show and tell table, and usually a wood raffle. Come by to say hello and see what we are all about. Visitors are welcome.
Never use cloth to apply finish to a lathe held piece. It can grab and pull your hand into the moving piece. Instead use a piece of paper towel that will tear away if it grabs and save your fingers.
