 ” 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 November Newsletter)

Happy November to all you turners out there. Didn’t see a single June bug or mosquito on my way to work today. All is good. Sorry I missed you all at this month’s meeting.You would think a guy would learn. But when someone offers free wood, especially Burls you don’t think about how heavy they may be. Yes, I’m old enough to know better.The worst part is after going all summer without a shop because of the move to Cameron, now I have the shop and can’t get in it because of a bad back.Enough of that, hope you are all starting to turn bowls for Feed My People. That time is coming soon.

Great to see that we are getting volunteers to do demonstrations for the upcoming year. Every one has something to share, and if you know of a demonstration that you would like to see, please let me know and we will try to make that happen.

Well here’s wishing you all a HAPPY THANKSGIVING, you’re free to overeat and have Turkey leftovers for days.

Hope to see you all at the December meeting.

Prez. Duane
