Welcome to Gold Country Woodturners
By Bill Juhl President
We have a great lineup for spring -- plan for all!
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, and all members are invited to attend. Schedule for that is on the Meetings and Events Calendar
We welcome new members of all skill levels, and visitors who want to explore becoming a woodturner. GUESTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO ALL MEETINGS!

Guide to a Startup Woodturners Shop for Under $1,000.
Jerry Hall initiated this guide a few years, as of Jan. 2015 it is up to date and Jerry will continue to keep it up to date. Available here and the Turning Reference/Techniques page.
Also available is a Turners Reference Guide which describes basic tool, their use and sharping guidelines and lots of other turning tidbits.
Videos of the Month
Starting this month we are introducing a Video of the Month feature. Each month there will be a beginner or intermediate project and a more advanced project. For March the beginner/intermediate video project is a simple goblet; the advanced project is an off-center bowl.
In addition, take a look at some of the hundreds of other videos on the Woodturning Videos site. They cover not only projects by category, but skills, techniques, tool use, design, sharpening. Spending time on these videos and then practicing is a great way to build satisfying turning skills. Thank Jerry Hall for providing this service.
