Welcome to CVWG!

 ” When a man works with his hands he is a laborer.   When he works with his hands and his mind he is a craftsman.   But when he works with his hands, his mind and his heart he is an artist”    – Author unknown    “quoted in print by  Louis Nizer in 1948″

We are a group of enthusiastic men and women from all walks of life, ages, and skill levels who come together to learn, educate, and advance the craft of turning wood into an item of beauty. Our membership covers all of West Central Wisconsin from Washburn County in the North to Jackson County in the South. From St. Croix County in the West to Clark County in the East and all points in between.

We endeavor to:

  •  Promote knowledge and skills with presentations by outside professionals as well as members.

  • Encourage members to bring their projects and experiences to meetings for the benefit of all. 

  • Provide a forum for information regarding access to woodturning knowledge, materials, and tools.

Whether you are new or an experienced turner, CVWG is for anyone interested in woodturning who want to get together with like minded people.  If you fit this criteria, you are cordially invited to attend our meetings and become a part of this group. Anyone seeking more information can check our page  About CVWG   print our new  Tri-Fold Brochure  or contact us via the email address on the  bottom of each page.

          PREZ SAYS
           (From January Newsletter)

Happy New Years to all of you. Here’s hoping for a better 2021. Hopefully a vaccine will make it into each of our arms and we can get together again. If you paid dues in 2020 they are good for 2021 and the club will financially survive for another year. You have me for President and all the officers the same for 2021…………………….unless we get together and you impeach us!

The next time you go to the club house the Starr avenue entrance moved 50 feet south but is still there. As I sent out earlier we will have a outdoor bowl collection for feed my people in the club house parking lot from 9 to 10 am on Saturday January 30. If you cannot make it you may drop them off at the feed my people warehouse between 8 and 4 Monday through Friday. If neither work e-mail me (ouzo@charter.net) and I will find a way to pick them up.

On the January 30 get together I will bring my centering jig for my
stacked bowls in this months show and tell (below in newsletter) if
any one is interested. Until then TURN TURN TURN
