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 email address on the  bottom of each page.

(From September Newsletter)

As I sit in my living room, looking out my window through the rain, I see my half finished shop with no work being done because of the rain, I wonder if I’m ever going to get back to my turning. Boy it’s been a long dry spell. I hope you all are making up for me. With school back on and vacations over, now is the time to make some chips fly.

Remember the challenge for the November meeting is a Christmas item or decoration. Let’s see how creative you can be.And bowls, bowls, bowls for the Feed My People fund raiser. I’m going to stick my neck way out and challenge you to top 500 this year. We can’t let the ceramic group beat us. Also for that event we would like one high end item for the silent auction, that’s a big $$$$ raiser.

I’m happy to welcome several new members to our guild. It’s my hope that you can have as much joy from your membership as I have. This is a great place to grow and polish your skills. If you are interested in a beginning Turner class let me know and we will schedule one as soon as possible.

Well that’s about it for now, hope to see you all soon,

Prez Duane
