Welcome to CVWG

A Chapter of the American Association of Woodturners


 ” 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″ 


We will continue to hold meetings on the first Wednesday
of each month.  If you are NOT VACCINATED please wear a mask! 


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 February Newsletter)

Well, I hope this newsletter finds everyone in good health and having had a Merry Christmas and a happy end to 2021. The new year didn’t start off very good with the first meeting needing to be canceled due to weather. I hope that is not a forecast of what 2022 is going to be like. We need to get back to a regular schedule.
We are still in need of bowls for Empty Bowls. We will be setting dates for the bowls to be delivered to Feed My People at our Feb 2 meeting. Please do what you can, they are counting on us to deliver as many as possible. Our wooden bowls are always a favorite.

We will also be having a guest speaker from Chippewa Valley Technical Collage to talk about a proposed scholarship program.

Our Board of directors is working on a couple of items the club has been taking about for a while. One item is standardizing our tool selection for the shop and another item is how to improve the video output to the 2 TV’s so everyone at the meeting can enjoy what the presenter is showing.

Our next meeting will be February 2nd and Rich Thelen will be demonstrating. Coffee and Chips will be February 12th. 8:00 to 12:00.
