Meet friends old and new; watch and learn new turning techniques; hands on classes on all levels of woodturning.
Monthly club meetings are open to all members and visitors. Come early to buy drawing tickets then the meeting starts at 7pm. We begin with a little bit of business and announcements. Many members bring items they have turned for a ‘show and tell’ session. Following a short break we raffle off many tools and supplies to the attendees. Usually around 8pm is when the demonstration begins. The end is around 9pm when we all pitch in to clean up and put away the chairs and equipment.
Demonstrations: DAW demonstrate at other venues from time to time by turning at schools, local wood stores, art galleries, and civic clubs.
Club Library: DAW has built an extensive library of woodturning books, magazines, and videos that are available to members for checkout.
Club Drawings: The club holds a monthly drawing to raise money for the library fund and other projects. Each month’s tickets are held over for a quarterly drawing for a larger prize.
Instant Gallery: Members and visitors of all skill levels are encouraged to bring some of their turnings, special tools, homemade jigs, etc. to display at meetings.
