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.

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 at:

Well, I hope the snow will recede soon and warmer weather will be here. Joe Nyze had a great demo at our last meeting on pepper

Empty Bowls is coming up in May this year and bowls are starting to come in. We are still in need of bowls for Empty Bowls so please do what you can. Our wooden bowls are always a favorite.

Our second Beginning class was a great success and our third class started the first week in March.  The remodeled dust collection system is in and working great.  Thanks to the members that were able to work on this project. It went well with all the help so, Thank You again to those that were able to help!

When the weather starts to break and is a little warmer we need to have a work day at the club house for some spring cleaning.  More to come on that.

There may be a Chainsaw Event this summer. The folks that put it on are in the planning stage. Nothing is scheduled yet but if it does get scheduled, we will let you know.
