I would like to join the weekly Coffee Hour. Thanks, Kent
Hi! I just discovered this group and started watching coffee hour videos. I think this is fantastic. I am new to woodturning. I recently turned my first pen at a Woodcraft class and have become hooked on woodturning. I would love to be able to attend live coffee hour meetings via zoom, if that would be ok. I cannot imagine how much I could learn from all of you here. I would really like to join the group. Thank you.
Really enjoy the coffee hour videos, some real gems in it. Used to be a flat woodworker, now semi retired and do a lot more turning. Enjoy Barrie's nifty contraptions, have to replicate his latest work holder.
Have been watching your meetings for quite a while. Found you on utube. I belong to Dakota Woodturners and have been a member for a few years (can't Remeber how many) and would like to attend your virtual meetings
I have only been turning for a few years and have watched a lot of your Coffee Hour videos and would appreciate the opportunity to join in. There is a tremendous amount of knowledge that your members share and I am anxious to learn. My father use to say “knowledge is a lite load to carry” and I am willing to carry all that I can get.
Nice site. I’m retired and interested in wood turning as a hobby. Have no experience or equipment to get started.
Good day. I have enjoyed watching the replays of your Thursday Coffee Hour and would appreciate an invite to join the meetings. Thank you.
I am a former Sarasota Woodturners member who has recently moved to Willow Valley. I am a member of AAW and would like to affiliate with your club. I am also a new member of the North Woodshop here at Willow Valley.
Hello, I just moved here from Fairbanks, Alaska and am interested in attending any in person meetings if available. I consider myself an intermediate level turner, mostly turning bowls. Thank you, Jim Barr
Hello! I am a wood turner from North Georgia and planning a trip in your area in October 2022 (haven't pinned the exact date down yet) but will likely be the first part of the month. I would love to meet up with someone who might like to do a little wood trading. Currently I have Pecan, Cherry and Maple working on acquiring others. I would be interested in Elm, Birch, Beech. Let me know if anyone has any interest.
Hi - My name is Dave. I a local turner (not a member but this might be a kick in the pants I need) and I wanted to share a find. Today I went to Habitat Restore and found a bunch of 1 gal cans of Anchorseal 2 for $10 each. There's probably about 40 and they were all unopened. Just thought I'd try to share the wealth! Dave
Great to see clubs embracing the virtual world. Keep up the good work with the coffee mornings.
Greetings, I just sent via email my application to join the club. You all look super organized and talented; I think I can learn a lot. I bought the mini lathe for practical purposes (guitar restoration) but found that it can become addicting (and satisfying) to turn 'stuff'! I'm guessing just show up at the next meeting, and I can write a check for the dues? Location address? ..thx..
You guys are a great resource and entertaining on the Thursday morning coffee hour, keep up the good work, heard about your group from the Long Island woodworkers special interest group of woodturners guild, maybe someday I make to a club meeting,,
I have been an AAW member for almost 20 years and learned of your coffee hour through one of John’s posts on the AAW Forum a few months back. Have throughly enjoyed watching a few and it is great to see the faces of many that I have come to know virtually over the years, some in person at the 3 symposiums I have attended. Your group is especially blessed and obviously John’s connections through the years add greatly. Very well done. I have made our Golden Horseshoe Woodturners Guild members in Burlington, Ontario aware of it. I enjoy any aspect of the broad world of woodturning and this format, which has grown out the greatest crisis we have ever faced, is a tremendous addition to the craft.
Hello, I stumbled across your site searching for places to learn more about turning. I have a great love for woodworking and have recently learned how much more I enjoy turning especially bowls. I plan to go over every bit of info on this site and hope to attend a coffee gathering but that be tough since I work 3rd shift.
Thanks for presenting in the AAW Leader meeting learned a lot. May join a coffee meeting some time to see how that works.
Glad I found your site. I inherited an older lath and am anxious to learn how to use it and turning techniques. It has various size pulley wheels with a belt drive system. Would like to know if I can convert it to rheostat control. Can the club give this novice some advice? Thanks.
Referred to you by Long Island Woodworkers group. Looking for educational resources and inspiration on designs.
I appreciate your website. The photograph of the farm in the snow does a good job of placing your club in the world. Thank you for your welcoming attitude.
