Nor-Cal Woodturners is a non-profit organization of woodturning enthusiasts from the greater Sacramento, California area. Our membership ranges from the novice to the seasoned woodturning professional.
Our mission is to foster an appreciation of the traditions and art of Woodturning. We do this by sharing our experiences, techniques and the turnings we produce with each other and the public.
Whether it's through our Youth Training Program, the Mentor program, club-sponsored day long turning events with nationally and internationally famous woodturners, our extensive library of books, tapes and DVDs or our monthly meetings, there is something for everyone.
The club meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month (except in November and December) at the Leo A. Palmiter Junior/Senior High School, 2040 Ethan Way Sacramento, California 95825. Our meetings are from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. All visitors are welcome.

Nor-Cal Woodturners is dedicated to promoting the art of woodturning. We would be happy to meet with any organization or school that would like to learn more about this age old craft.
Currently we work very closely with the Elinor Hickey and Leo A. Palmiter Junior/Senior High Schools. Each Friday during the school year our members donate their time to teach one-on-one with a select group of students. Click on Youth Training for more information.
This award winning program is helping the students get exposure to positive roll models and teaching them skills that can be useful in future trades. We can always use more volunteers so if you'd like to help just send an email to: Information@NorCalWoodturners.org
