Our 2018 SPW CHRISTMAS PARTY is December 18th.  As in past years the party will be at Captain Steve's Family Seafood Restaurant located at 5645 NC Highway 49 S in Harrisburg.


Any Member who has not signed up may do so by texting or calling Phil Goodman at 904-796-0803.


We will be doing our "Dirty Santa" gift exchange again this year.  Each member attending is asked to turn an item and wrap it for the gift exchange.  Each member will be given an opportunity to choose a gift from the table of gifts or to take one from someone who already has a gift.  There is a limit on how many times a gift can be chosen.  This has been a lot of fun for everyone.  There is no need to bring a gift for your spouse or guest.  I am working on ways to possibly speed up the events of the evening. If you are a new turner, please do not let that stand in the way of bringing a gift.  We each enjoy receiving a gift from our fellow turners.



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 the 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!
