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 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.

Now that the weather has finally started to get warmer, I hope you are able to finally get out to your shops and start your turning projects.
We had a great turnout last meeting with Dan Brandner putting on a really nice demo on how to make small projects from scrap pieces of wood.
The Saturday Open House was very well attended with several new turners getting a chance to try out their new turning skills. We had several members learn about bandsaw safety and the proper way to safely cut bowl blanks.
We will be having our annual Pot Luck at our cabin near Colfax WI. Sunday June 4th from 11:30 to 3:00 All are welcome and bring spouses. An email will be sent out with directions.
Our next meeting will be June 7th. 6:00 to 9:00. Our next Saturday morning Open House will be June 10th 8:00 to 12:00..
