Woodturning is a form of woodworking that is used to create wooden objects on a lathe. Woodturning differs from most other forms of woodworking in that the wood is moving while a stationary tool is used to cut and shape it. Many intricate shapes and designs can be made by turning wood.

Special Meeting Notice from Secretary Roy B.

Sunday, May 6th at 1:30, we are having the CPR class at the Moose Lodge in
Richmond (the ambulance base was too small for all of us).

Sunday, May 20th, the general membership meeting at the Community Center has been canceled.

Sunday, June 10th, is the picnic at Wayne’s house. He lives on Bates Rd. in Chesterfield MI. Please  use the calendar event to find the location info. Bring a dish to pass. The club is buying chicken and ham. Remember the board challenge: a turning with two or more pieces of wood joined on the lathe (mortise and tenon, inset ring, etc. NOT segmenting).The winner by popular vote will win the chuck from last year’s tool “jackpot.”
