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″ 


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 bottom of each page.

(excerpts from March Newsletter)

Guess what, daylight savings time and 40° both the same week. Spring must be here.  Sorry but my yard doesn’t look like it.  Still can’t get to my woodshed. 

I have missed the last two monthly meetings because on other obligations, soon my schedule should improve although Sue and I are excited about the next chapter in our lives which includes a move to the Rice Lake area but it’s only an hour away from the clubhouse. I’ll be back for the first Wednesday….

I want to thank you all for the awesome response to the Feed my People event. We set a new record with our donation of bowls and auction items. John will share the details. 

How about a presidents challenge? With spring and warm weather on the horizon, how about a turning, bowl, plate or vase,  whatever, with a fish carved, wood burned, painted or dec- o- podged on it. 

Let’s stretch a little. 

Well have fun, and those who have unheated shops, soon !!!

See you all in April,
Prez, Duane
