You’ve come to the award-winning home of one of the oldest woodturning clubs in the U.S. We bring woodturners of all skill levels together to share ideas and techniques, and we promote woodturning as both a craft and an art form.
What we do.
At our meetings, you’ll see wood-turning demonstrations, share ideas, and have a chance to show off your work. We had been meeting via Zoom, but we've resumed in-person meetings at the Brookfield Craft Center.
Get to know us.
We urge you to visit the site often to see the wide range of our members' creativity and to check the upcoming events page for meetings, classes, and demos. We hope you like what you see, join the club, and participate in our regular challenges.
What a great meeting!
Our May meeting was one for the record books. As the photo shows, we enjoyed a tremendous turnout—including a half-dozen new members and visitors. We had more than one raffle, thanks to a generous donation of carbide negative-rake scrapers from Michael Ginsberg. The 50-50 raffle itself grossed $120. Twenty members brought pieces for the Show-and-Tell. You can see them all in the Gallery. The high point of the evening was a demonstration of box-making by Steve Holm-Hansen.
The AAW is the world's largest organization devoted to work on the lathe. We urge all Nutmeg members to also join the AAW.
Our club has a long and rewarding association with the Brookfield Craft Center, which offers a wide range of classes in turning, weaving, jewelry, pottery, digital arts, and more.
Join the ongoing discussions on our Facebook group. Members can share images of their work, see what others are doing, and keep up with club events.
Join the club's Google Group to stay in touch with other Nutmeggers. This is a great resource if you have tools to sell or wood to share, or if you're in the market for tools or wood.
