If you’d like to join LAW, our annual dues are $30 (prorated if you join mid-year) and provide endless resources to help you sharpen your woodturning skills. Besides the huge resource of reference material and the archives of dozens of Coffee Hours and Monthly Meeting videos on our web site, you get:
- Monthly club meetings in a modern, well-equipped shop featuring demonstrations by highly talented local, regional and/or nationally recognized turners – also via live Zoom calls for those unable to attend.
- Weekly, informal Coffee Hour Zoom meetings with short demonstrations by club members, “Show & Tell” sessions, and group discussions and advice.
- Periodic technical sessions/courses or supervised open turning sessions with experienced club members or nationally recognized turners.
- Learn safe turning techniques to be used in your own workshop.
- Acquire wood, turning tools and supplies through club swap sessions or at a very reasonable cost.
- Interaction with other turning clubs in South Central PA and across the US and Europe.
- Fellowship with others who are passionate about woodturning.
Our club is a chapter of the AAW and membership in it also has benefits for you and to the club. We believe the magazine, American Woodturner, is worth the cost of AAW membership alone, but there are many more benefits. Being a member of AAW also gives you access to thousands of archived articles, hints, tips, tool reviews, photographic examples of work done all over the world, and schedules for regional and national events. Please click on the AAW logo (above) to be directed to the AAW site for more information on the benefits of membership.
