We are in some exciting times in the history of Southern Piedmont Woodturners and I want to share some great information with you.


Your board met on May 22, 2018 and determined one of the items on our to do list is to set a schedule for Second Saturdays at the club. It is our goal to have some turning project scheduled for every Second Saturday. Several people have mentioned that they wish we had some alternative nights that we could get together at the club to turn.





Good morning fellow wood turners!  Welcome to Fall. There are only 33 days until Thanksgiving and 66 days until Christmas.  But did you know there are only 59 days until our 2018 SPW CHRISTMAS PARTY!  Our party will be at Captain Steve's Family Seafood Restaurant located at 5645 NC Highway 49 S in Harrisburg.


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.
