We are the Denver area chapter of the AAW (American Association of Woodturners) serving Woodturners throughout Colorado's Front Range.
We help Woodturners gain experience by providing monthly demonstrations with Professional Turners, a library, mentoring, a Ladies group (Ladies of the Lathe) and Youth mentoring, etc.
Everyone is welcome to join us at one of our monthy meetings to see what we are all about.

Visitors and new members are always welcome.
Tuesday, July 10th
As mentioned above, the July meeting is going to be on July 10th.
Our demonstrator for July is Keith Gotschall who is a professional woodturner from Salida, CO.
Demo Description:3 Bowl Demo.
Keith will turn three bowls in 90 minutes. He will go over bowl turning basics, and we will make some mistakes on purpose to learn why not to do certain things. He will also show the techniques he uses that work for him. Lots of chips will fly!
With the three bowls he will be talking about critique and the language of design. Open form, closed form, reverse curves, energy, weight; ever wonder what all this means? We will delve into shape and what some of the mysterious art language might mean to you and your turning.
Many thanks to the June Clean Up Crew Volunteers: Bob Carver, Grove Brown, Vern DeGroot.

The next Quarterly Board Meeting will be Saturday, August 4th at 9:00 AM in the basement of Rockler. This is a week earlier than previously scheduled to ensure that officers will be present for a quorum.
