Club Info

NAW (North Alabama Woodturners) meets the 4th Saturday of each month except in April or if a holiday conflicts with the scheduled date, the Directors schedule a different weekend.

The meeting starts at 9:00 am and lasts through the demo. Typically the meetings are over by noon. Sometimes special events or classes are scheduled and the meeting will last longer.

We welcome visitors to bring samples  of their turning. Besides a scheduled demo, we also have a raffle, “Eternal Challenge” turned piece and a door prize available to any signed in attendee.

Presently NAW  meets here, but sometimes will meet at another member’s shops. Check our  Events Calendar  page to determine the location of each meeting or contact a director. Click on the desired activity and once open, click on the map area.

The club has six mini-lathes with tool sets and a grinder and does offer classes on various aspects of woodturning.

Once a year, typically in October, the club invites a major woodturner for a three day Woodturning Weekend. Friday and Sunday are special classes while a normal meeting is held on Saturday.

A newsletter is published monthly highlighting upcoming events and the scheduled demonstration. If you would like to receive this newsletter, contact any of the Directors listed below or send an email with your email address to the Secretary (listed below).
