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 October Newsletter)

Here we go again, guess what, summer is over so we get to spend more time inthe shop and less time at the lake and just in time. We all need to get serious about turning bowls for our clubs one and only outreach, “FEED MY PEOPLE” food bank fund raiser. This is a great worthy project that we all need to get behind. If every club member will turn at least 10 bowls we will break all past records. Please set your goals. Also in regard to this project try to turn one special item for the silent auction. 

With all that said, the president’s challenge for our December meeting is a Christmas tree ornament or a Christmas decoration. Let’s see if everyone can enter at least one item for this challenge.

I know that some of our club members don’t have a good source for wood and I also know that some of us, me included have more wood than we will ever get to turn. How about building a wood bank. I was at Rocklers last weekend and the price they were charging for bowl blanks shocked me. If each of us would bring in a few blanks to be available for a donation of some sort, we would raise some money for the club as well as provide some cheap blanks for our members. How about it ?

Well I’ll get off my soap box for this month and let you get back to your shop.
