Welcome to Gold Country Woodturners
By Bill Juhl President
We are a group of woodturners who live in the northern Sierra Nevada foothills concentrated around Grass Valley and Nevada City, California. We joined together to expand our ability to turn wood objects and to help others to do so. 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 40 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, 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!
