Our President, Shann Galuza, gave some announcements before the "Show and Tell" where members talked about some of their latest turnings. Finally the President's Challenge of "Wing It" was judged.  See it all by clicking here.

Who we are:

 

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. If you have any questions write to information@norcallwoodturners.org


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).
