Welcome

West Michigan Woodturners is an association of woodturners of all skill levels from beginners to advanced turners. The club is focused on education and advancing the art and science of turning all forms on lathes. We periodically offer an introductory class for beginning turners. At the monthly meetings demonstrations by either club members or invited speakers allow for turners of all levels to advance their skills. Please browse our site to see what we are doing and contact us if you have any questions.

Remember to bring a donation or two for the Raffle table so we can have a big raffle for the holiday season!

Remember to bring your latest turning for the instant gallery table so you can brag in the show and tell session.

Remember to bring your spouse or special friend.

AND remember to bring your pie to share, (not required but real nice)

Demonstration and Hands-on session:

Join us for our December meeting.  Chris Thompson President of the Michiana Woodturners in Niles will be doing a demo to show how he turns and makes his Christmas gnomes.  This would be a great tabletop or shelf holiday decoration for your own home or gift for someone.  With this demo Chris will demonstrate how he makes the project including shaping the body and hat.  Plus, also turning a ball for the nose.  Chris will also lead a hands-on session after the meeting. This will be a chance for eight of our members to learn how to make this fun seasonal decoration.
