Monthly Meeting Demonstrations


The JULY 17TH meeting is the annual Business Meeting with election of officers:

     7/10/2018: Good evening everyone. Please forgive the multiple emails but this is very important so please read!

     I want to encourage every member to attend next Tuesday's meeting on the 17th.  As most of you know this is our annual meeting at which we will elect new officers and board members.  We will also recap the past year and share our thoughts and plans for the coming year.  I clearly understand we live busy and sometimes hectic lives; but, please consider coming out.

     Based on your board's request and recommendations the following members have agreed to serve another term in their current position.  This is not an automatic "decision".  The floor will still be open for nominations and volunteers who may want to serve as a board member or executive officer.


Walt Hazelrigg           Board Member

Vince Keiper             Board Member

Cindy Boehrns            Treasurer

Phil Goodman             President


One year left on term

Hayley Kozma             Secretary

Tony Profera             Board Member

Steve Martin             Board Member


Open Position            Vice President


     Any member whose dues are paid current is eligible to run for office for either a board member position, President or Vice President.

     We are in need of a Vice President as you can see.  I encourage one of you (at least one) to volunteer and run for Vice President.  This is not a difficult position to fill and you will not be burdened with undue responsibilities.  If you are interested in running for a board member position, President or Vice President, please email or call me by Sunday evening, July 15.  If you want to nominate someone, you must get their permission/approval prior to the nomination.

     If you have made or are making items for the Fair, please feel free to bring them in on Tuesday.  We are still in need of three or more items to raffle off at the Fair. This is a great opportunity for our seasoned turners to come to the aid of our club.

     This year got off to a great start, we hit some bumps in the road and kept going.  The remainder of this year and next year look to be promising for our club.  Everyone's support, participation and attendance is very important.


I once again want to thank each of you for all you do for SPW.






The June Turner Of The Month was John Bartels and the successful / lucky  "winner of the drew" was Jim Smith:













Over the next year we are planning several teaching/workshop sessions to teach a wide array of turning skills from how to select the wood to make a particular object, to how to sharpen tools, to make particular cuts to achieve a special effect and how to apply finishes to get the final look that makes the piece especially attractive. Keep an eye on our plans as they develop.


Southern Piedmont Woodturners begin to gather at 5:30 pm at their studio at the corner of Kerr and Crowell, Concord, NC.  The actual evening is about 2 hours, including a brief announcement period, raffle, review of member turned pieces and snacks, winding up about 9:00 pm.  Visitors are always welcome!
