Welcome! Learning in style

Richmond Woodturners is a group of young and old who love wood and live to turn. We get together every month to have fun and share ideas and expertise with each other.

We meet at 6:30pm on the 3rd Thursday of each month at the Woodcraft located at 9862 West Broad Street, Richmond, VA. We invite everyone who loves wood to join us.

If it is your first time visiting us, read some of our past newsletters to prepare you for a fun and educational evening.

Exciting Upcoming Events

American Association of Woodturners

Monthly Demonstration

January 19, 2017, Project Planning—Ever sit down with a cup of coffee and your new project and the next thing you know it’s six months later? In our January session Mark Strang will uncover some of the mystery of new projects. Most new turners are nervous starting a project and performing what appear to be complex operations. Mark will try to take away some of the mystery and create a comfortable feeling when attacking raw stock and provide tips and strategies for roughing out a piece of wood and performing finishing operations once the piece has dried.

Quarterly Turning Challenge

March 16, 2017—Turn a finial longer than 6" as one continuous piece no thicker than 1" Longest finial gets the prize.
