 ” 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.

          PREZ SAYS
           (From December Newsletter)

Well Ho Ho Ho and Merry Christmas to all you fine folks. I hope my buddy Santa brings you lots of wood.As I sit here this morning watching the snow pile up, AGAIN! My thoughts go to the awesome celebration we all are about to participate in. My prayer for all is great health to you and all the blessings you can handle. But in the midst of being blessed, don’t forget to bless others. This is the season of giving. How awesome it would be if each of us found a family in need and would do our best to meet
the need.I want to thank you all for another great year here at CVWG. It has been a wonderful year for the club with several new members and some fantastic demos that we all learned from.As I step down from my office of prez, I want to thank you all for another fun filled year.

Let’s make 2020 a year of building, not only bowls for Feed My People, but building our club. Think what we could be if each of us would bring in one new member.

OK, that’s all for now, stay warm, I see the snow is letting up so time to plow.

Be blessed and see you next year if not before.

Ex Prez, Duane
