About Front Range Woodturners

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.

Our Next Meeting

Monthly Meeting

We meet on the first Tuesday of every month from 6:15 to 9:00 PM in the basement of Rockler Woodworking and Hardware.
Visitors and new members are always welcome.

Tuesday, August 7th

Our demonstrator for August is Jimmy Clewes from Las Vegas, NV. Jimmy is well known on the woodturning circuit and is in high demand as an instructor and demonstrator the world over. If you’ve never seen Jimmy demo before, you’re in for a treat!


Tri-Corner Bowl with Lid

This is a really interesting turning, mounted corner to corner in the lathe, you have to look and cut to the “Ghost line” to see the shape and form the bowl. The lids adds a little extra!!

Tuesday, September 4th

Our demonstrator for August is Ron Ainge from our very own Front Range Woodturners club.
