Welcome to the
Alaska Woodturners Association

Our woodturning organization is committed to the advancement of woodturning, by helping all who wish to learn to create items by the use of a wood lathe.


Alaska Woodturners Association
will be demonstrating woodturning at the

Alaska State Fair

August 27 - September 7, 2015

Demonstrators are needed. As always, demonstrators must be a member in good standing with Alaska Woodturners Association and the American Association of Woodturners to be covered with the club liability insurance policy.

Wood will be available to turn bowl blanks for the Beans Cafe Empty Bowl Project, if you would like to turn bowl blanks while demonstrating.

Demonstrators are encouraged to turn whatever project they like, and to promote safe practices while turning.
