Latest Website Update!
    The AAW publishes a great document periodically covering various tips and techniques regarding the fundamentals of woodturning.  Try out the new tab ‘AAW Fundamentals’ to see the latest copy.

Our March 2017 meeting will be held on 18 March at 9am.  As always please arrive early to check out the Show and Tell table and socialize.  This meeting will feature a number of our members presenting various tips and techniques that are sure to further your understanding and skill at woodturning and hopefully make it all easier and a bit less daunting.  We will also be hosting an auction and buy/sell opportunity to unload and gain all sorts of woodturning related items.  Bring what you no longer need and an eagerness to look for something new to you.
