 ” 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 November Newsletter)
I hope everyone is staying
well and social distancing in front of your lathes. While in front of those lathes please turn some bowls for Feed My People. I heard from 7 members to pledge bowls for the event but would like to here
from a lot more of you. Please email me (ouzo@charter.net) with guess of how many bowls you
will donate and thanks.

Election of officers is coming up in December but we all said we would keep positions for two years so I will dispense with it for now. If anyone thinks I am becoming a dictator for forgoing an election they can………………….

The presidents challenge should give people some ideas this month. There will be no vote or winners, just ideas. If you did not submit send it anyway and we will include it in the December newsletter. See you soon??? And remember to TURN TURN TURN
