 ” 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 February Newsletter)

Hey woodturners,
How you doing? What can I say, just keep shoveling! So much for a mild winter.  As most of you are aware, the February meeting was canceled because of weather. If you didn’t get the email notice, I apologize. It may have gone out on an older mailing list. So that being a situation, if you need to send info out to club members, make sure you have the latest list. You can get it from Randy. 

If you have bowls yet for “Feed My People ” please contact me at elk.stir@gmail.com and I will get them from you.  Each of you who are signed up to do a demo at a club meeting,please just move your demo forward one month. If that can’t work, let me know.
We are always looking for new ideas for demos for club meetings. If you would like a demonstration on a given area of wood turning, let me know and we will try to get in in the schedule. 

For those of you who like to turn natural edge bowls, now is the time to cut the trees before the sap starts to flow. The bark is less likely to loosen.  Obviously because on no meeting this month our letter will be somewhat shorter. I give Tom credit for his creativity in making it informative, Thanks Tom !
Well again as Bugs Bunny sez, “That’s all folks”
Prez Duane
