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.

Special Notice


An election is a process in which people vote to choose a person or group of people to hold an official position.

Club elections are coming up next month, be thinking what position YOU would like to volunteer for! It would be nice to have an actual election where we can vote for candidates instead of just one name per spot (no offense intended to the current Board as I think they are doing a fantastic job).

The official description for each position is in our Bylaws starting on page 5. The Bylaws are on our website under the CLUB INFORMATION tab. Feel free to talk to the current Officer or Chair to ask them any questions you may have.



The October Newsletter is now avaliable.
