Welcome to Artistic Woodturners!
Welcome to Artistic Woodturners. We are a dynamic group of individuals who enjoy designing and making objects of wood, bone, stone and manmade synthetics such as Corian - in short, any material that is possible to shape on a woodturning lathe.

The cumulative turning experience of our current club members measures in the centuries! We enjoy monthly opportunities to share our accumulated experience and to meet, encourage, and teach newcomers about this craft. There are no mandatory assignments but each month brings a new challenge project that is first taught in a demonstration.



Turning material is frequently auctioned during meetings, providing inexpensive local access to project materials. A show and tell session is part of each meeting; members present recent projects for review and constructive criticism. We share our mistakes also, hoping to prevent others experiencing the same disappointing outcome. We especially stress safe turning practices.

We bring in recognized experts to demonstrate their unique skills and viewpoints. Staunch friendships develop readily. In December we party together, enjoying great food and voluntarily exchanging individually wrought objects. Membership is open to everyone who has interest in woodturning.

We possess an extensive library of books and DVD's about every aspect of turning - available without charge to all members. Many members serve as mentors, teaching their particular skills in a one-on-one situation.

We hope that the following pages will pique your interest and that you will consider attending one of our monthly gatherings. We are excited about what we do and think that we can infect you with our enthusiasm if given the opportunity.

Our meetings are held on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. until noon, at:

Ragon Hall
2600 Stratford Road
Pensacola, FL
