Founded in 2009 the Lancaster Area Woodturners are a diverse collection of turners from the new beginner to recognized artist.
The club is a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners and proud to have been awarded the Star Chapter designation for being a chapter with 100% AAW membership.
Our members range from the just beginning woodturner to the professional . We find that with changing technology and new approaches there is always something to learn.
We have found that there is usually someone in the club that has tried that new technique or is ready to show a new idea. Sitting next to you is probably someone that 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, treen ware, 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.
