 ” 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.

   (excerpts from June Newsletter)
Welcome to summer gang, how’s your turning projects going ? This is the time we should all begin filling the tables at the “Empty Bowls” event.But before that comes the World Chainsaw Competition at Carson Park. This year we will have two tents, the first is the “Turn your own pen” area and the second will be “info and craft sales”. We would like everyone to turn a couple of projects that we can sell to offset the cost of the event. Items that sell for under $20 will probably sell the best. Things like wine stoppers, salt and pepper grinders and candle stands are just some ideas anything will be appreciated. We also need all of you to volunteer to spend some time at either one of our tents. We are breaking down the work into two hour shifts. Thanks for volunteering.Remember that the President’s challenge for the August meeting is a natural edge bowl, they can be either bark on or off. If you need wood for this, I still have some natural edge blocks to give away, but am packing up to move north so come and grab some quick.

I noticed that we have several open months on the summer and fall “demo schedule ” think about what part of our interests you can spend some time sharing with the rest of us. You don’t have to be an “expert” to have something to share. We all can learn from each other.

Well, I have to get backing for my move north so will close this for now. See you all at the July meetings.
