Our wood-turning group is committed to the advancement of wood-turning.


Join us for our next meeting April 30th, 12:00 PM at the Gardiner Community Center.

The Strait Turners Meeting for April;

One of the most requested topics for a club presentation in our survey of members last year was “tool control for better turning” of anything!  John Elliott and Dick Bumgarner will present at the April 30 meeting covering a range of details of the craft of wood turning that make for better “tool control”, and thus for better turning, no matter your skill level.  The American Association of Woodturners checklist essay entitled the TEN Principles of Clean Cutting will provide a roadmap for the detailed presentation of making of several objects - involving spindle turning tools, parting tools, bowl- or vessel-making gouges of different sizes and bevel angles and scrapers. These clean cutting principles will help you understand how to control what is happening at the "cutting edge" and thus how to produce better objects at your lathe. A handout to take home will give you reference materials to remind you of what to do when you stand before your lathe.   

Come and Join us

We will be having a raffle at this meeting, A wood auction is planned for this meeting.


Our club would like to thank all members that have renewed their membership by paying their dues, and remind those that have not renewed yet to please do so. 


Our club is always looking for donated items to be used in the monthly "raffle" & "wood" for the wood auction. All of these proceeds go directly to the club to help keep our yearly  membership fees at a reasonable rate & to promote  club activities & woodturning .
