Website News

Our website will be undergoing some major changes within the next couple of months. (Hopefully sooner, rather than later.)

The purpose of these changes are to better manage news and resources for our members, class lists, and membership.

The changes include a new navigation structure, and a lot of behind-the scenes stuff that will make the website work on all types of devices. Consequently, the website will change dramatically in some ways.

AAW News

The American Association of Woodturners has published in its most recient issue (December 2016; pg13) an article about our chapter's participation in the Bean's Cafe empty bowl project.
