a chapter of the american association of woodturners

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.

Membership is open to experienced wood turners, people who have never stood at a lathe, and everyone in between. All you need is the passion to turn. Come to a monthly meeting to learn about our club.

safety Reminder

When buffing and waxing pieces with on lathe buffing systems, wear thin, textured rubber gloves.  They help prevent the piece from flying out of your hands if the cloth wheels catch on an edge, hole, or irregularity.
