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.

Next Meeting

Please plan to attend the July 11th meeting at 10 AM on Zoom again. Sign-in time starts at 9:30 AM. Our guest speakers will be two of our members, Todd Beck and Ted Huizenga, who will present ideas and how they do enhancing of turnings. The demonstration covers many topics of enhancement, including but not limited to pyrography, texturing, paint and finish techniques. This is a very informative and design provoking discussion/talk about many of their own techniques and experiences.To help the meeting be successful, please plan to take part in the “Show N Tell” portion. Just like our regular meetings, you can show your turning(s) and talk about how you produced it, the trial and errors and of course the finish that you used on it. If you need help setting up Zoom please phone Fred, 269-830-8934.
