massachusetts south shore woodturners

a chapter of the american association of woodturners



Every month the club holds a Hands On event on a Saturday morning from 10:00-12:00 (check the calendar for the next date).  All members are invited to attend and work on their own projects or watch other woodturners and ask questions.

This is also an opportunity to work one on one with an experienced woodturner to create a specific item, learn a new technique, or hone your skills with a particular tool. If you would like to work with an instructor, we ask that you sign up ahead of time to ensure there is a lathe available for you and a turner matched to your specific project or needs.  Note:  priority of the Powermatic lathe will go to the instructors.

Anyone who is present at Hands On is welcome to watch an instructor and student and ask questions.   We only ask that members who are not participating in the one on one instruction refrain from helping with their own ideas.  Of course there are many ways to approach turning, but it can be confusing during the learning process to hear several different methods at once.

Please contact Pablo Gazmuri with any questions or to sign up, or fill out and submit the form on this page, and you will be contacted.

Also, kindly contact Pablo if you are interested in participating as an instructor.
