 ” 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″ 

 

CVWG is a  Member of the American Association of Woodturners

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.

           (From February Newsletter)

This club can really be proud of itself. We turned 366 bowls in for Feed My People. If anyone has more, bring them to our March meeting and I will turn them in. We could especially use a few really nice items for the silent auction.Our meeting is on March 4 and Empty Bowls the next day March 5.I will have a few free tickets to pass out but I encourage as many of you as possible to attend and see what your supporting.

Rich Thelen will bring order forms to the next meeting for club logo hats and shirts.

The presidents challenge for May will be a turning that is NOT a bowl, pen or Xmas ornament so put your thinking caps on!!!

See you in March and TURN TURN TURN.
