The Lancaster Area Woodturners are in hybrid mode, meeting online via Zoom and in person at Kauffman Kitchens, 250 Commerce Dr, New Holland at 7:00pm Eastern on the first Tuesday of every month.

Our weekly Coffee Hour meets on Zoom every Thursday at 10:00am Eastern for a provocative and entertaining hour of shared shop talk, humor, and woodturning education.

You don’t have to be a member to join our meetings – send us your email address through the Contact Us page and we’ll send you the Zoom invitation.

Our club also sponsors a monthly open shop (second Saturdays, 9-12 am), in person with no Zoom, at our meeting place above Kauffman Kitchens in New Holland PA. We’ve got four lathes with basic tools and chucks, and bins of practice wood. You can turn, watch, or just chat. Please join us! 

You can see videos of previous Zoom Coffee Hours in the ‘Coffee Hour & Club Mtg Videos’ groups on the right side of this page.

Located in beautiful Lancaster County, PA, in the heart of our nation’s original Amish Country, our members range from those just beginning to explore the world of woodturning to established professionals.

We find that with changing technology and new approaches there is always something to learn. There is usually someone in the club who has tried that new technique or is ready to show a new idea. Sitting next to you is probably someone who has tried that new tool or has the old-school version in their shop.

Woodturners, you will find, are some of the most sharing craftspeople you will meet. Whether it is a piece of wood, a tool, or a technique, woodturners share their knowledge and work hard to preserve and promote the craft of woodturning.

We have members that have turned furniture pieces, architectural pieces, toys, treenware, segmented, art, utility, ornamental, and many many items just for fun. We turn on Oneway, Nova, Robust, Powermatic, Craftsman, Laguna, Jet, Stubby, and grandpa’s lathe.
