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.
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.
