Coffee and Chips Canceled for August


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 August Newsletter)

For those who missed it we had a good August meeting and a great demo by Richard Ryan. I now know how to rout bows into my work. I think all these demos have little knowledge pearls that seem to slither in. For me it was is using a live tailstock chuck which I had never heard of but said “WOW” I can use one of those in my own bowls or plates. Thus the demo made me $40 poorer and Amazon $40 richer.

Thanks to Dennis Ciesielski for representing the club at the Menominee Paint The Town event

Hopefully our attendance will start to pick up come fall. At our September meeting Paul Meske will show us how to make beautiful bowls out of rotten wood

We will hold off on Coffee and chips until October because of little interest in the summer and covid. Until then
