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.

(From September Newsletter)
Our meeting in September was well attended. The air conditioning was still not working so we opened the back door and drew air from below to cool the shop. They are waiting on parts for the unit so may not need it by the next meeting.
Tom Leonard put on a demo on making Tenon Pens and Buttons. It went well and Tom did a good job of explaining the difficulties of making each and the precision needed to make things work and fit.
Sue Mohr was elected Treasurer replacing Randy Patzke who did a wonderful job for the last few years. Thank you Randy!
I talked to Brad from Brads Tree Service, he has Cherry, Oak, Ash logs that he needs to saw. He can cut it on his sawmill to custom dimensions and is willing to do it for a free will donation. for more information call Brad at 715-505-2773.
We had a guest that brought in several pieces of spindle wood of various species for members to take.
We have a box of walnut pen blanks that need to be drilled and tubes installed. Any help would be great!
