Monthly Meetings

NOTICE: National Park College has closed the campus for face to face classes and meetings. The CAW will continue with Virtual meetings using zoom until the campus reopens. Virtual meetings include show and tell by members and the CAW makes regular use of Interactive Remote Demonstrations by woodturning professionals from around the world every other month alternating with member demo's each month. If interested in joining, contact us at info@centralarwoodturners.org. We will continue in-person meetings as described below as soon as possible when our current health crisis has passed.

Monthly meeting's are held on the 2nd Saturday of every month. Coffee, sodas and doughnuts (and lots of conversation) are available from 8:00 - 9:00. Meetings run from 9:00 - 10:30 am, which include "Show and Tell" by the membership, introductions to new members or guests, presentations from local vendors, and general discussion about future club activities. A demonstration or presentation of woodturning techniques is presented from about 10:30 AM to noon, some are done on the lathe in the NPCC woodshop (in an adjacent building).

Please email us at info@centralarwoodturners.org for more information.
