Our next meeting will be on May 21st starting at 9am although everyone is encouraged to arrive early to socialize.  Tom Zepeda will be giving a demonstration on Bowl Turning with Optional Gouges and Chucks.  This will be a great example of how varied our techniques can be and how you can adapt different methods and tools into your skill set.

The club is hosting a “Skills Night” event each month, please inquire at the next meeting or contact Lance Pearce for questions/details.

Be sure to check out the Newsletter, they are an amazing wealth of information both on the previous meeting as well as links to businesses and other AAW chapters.

The Apple Valley Woodturners have great resource available to our members – lathe and tool rental.  We have a number of mini-lathes that can be rented for the month between meetings with full sets of chucks and tools.  It’s a great way to try out woodturning without committing the expense.  Please use the contact form or see Lance Pearce at one of our meetings.
