The club is affiliated with the American Association of Woodturners (AAW) and support the mission & purpose of AAW.

Getting Started in Woodturning

Just starting or wondering about woodturning? There are many resources that provide a well rounded introduction to woodturning. One of the best is provided by the American Association of Woodturners who's mission is to promote woodturning in all of its facets. Although American in name the AAW has members around the world. Although LAW is affiliated with AAW, membership in AAW is not required to be a member of LAW or to attend our meetings.

Lathe for Use-Picked up

The donated lathe we had was picked up by a new turner.  We had another request we could not fill.  Some other clubs have a pool of lathes that they can loan out and it is something for the club to consider.  

If you are a new turner and want to try out woodturning get contact us and we can either help find a lathe or put you in touch with one of our members who have volunteered to be mentors.  

If you are interested drop us a note.
