Who We Are

Welcome to Gold Country Woodturners

We are a group of woodturners who live in the northern Sierra Nevada foothills concentrated  around Grass Valley and Nevada City, California.  We share our work, methods, new ideas, and demonstrate tools and techniques with each other and in our community.  Between meetings we are available to help each other, gather wood, and search out learning and teaching opportunities.  We are an active chapter of the American Association of Woodturners with approximately 75 members.

Through the year, we schedule several hands-on workshops on various topics and work to help our members achieve their woodturning goals.

Our general meetings  focus on education, sharing our woodworking journey and fun.  To keep the business stuff to a minimum at general meetings we have a monthly board of directors meeting that handles most of our business stuff and all members are invited to attend.  See  Club Events  for meeting schedule.
    
 We welcome new members of all skill levels, and visitors who want to explore becoming a woodturner.  GUESTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO ALL MEETINGS!
