Founded on April 21st, 1994 the South Puget Sound Woodturners is in the top 10 clubs in the American Association of Woodturners (AAW). Why is that? Because we have a large and diverse membership.

Our members range from beginner to internationally acclaimed professionals. Our interests range from penmaking to bowls, turned ornaments to hollow vessels, spindles to platters.

Attend our monthly membership meetings and you will find a varied program. Many months you will find a renowned expert in their field demonstrating material selection, tool usage, segmenting, wood coloring, ebonizing, and lots of turning techniques. Twice a year we have a mini-symposium where members demonstrate anything you could imagine.

Another great benefit for our members is our “Sawdust Sessions”. These occur the Saturday following most membership meetings. This is a hands on session with mentors from the club. Bring your safety glasses, tools and wood and get help with any questions you may have. This is an amazing one-on-one opportunity to improve your turning skills.

There are so many more benefits and learning opportunities to membership in the South Puget Sound Woodturners. Come and visit our next meeting and see what turning is all about!
