Welcome to the
Alaska Woodturners Association

Our woodturning organization is committed to the advancement of woodturning, by helping all who wish to learn to create items by the use of a wood lathe.


The Next Alaska Woodturners Association Meeting

is our

AWA Annual Picnic/Club Meeting!


May 30, 2015
10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. (approximate)

A short meeting will be followed by a woodturning demonstration by Richard Acuff.

After the demonstration, enjoy the camadarie, great food, and Instant Gallery.

A People's Choice Instant Gallery will be held, so be sure to bring your turnings to enter! Cast your vote for your favorite piece. (Yes, you can vote for your own turning!)

Bring a Side dish to share!

Bring some of your turnings to share in the instant gallery!


On April 4, 2015, Gary Nelson gave an excellent
demonstration on creating Segmented Turnings, which
included cutting the pieces, gluing up and turning.

(Pictures were taken, but are currently not available.
They will be added when possible.)

Alaska Woodturners Association gives Nick Carwile at ClearWater Productions a big thank you for the wonderful pictures he took of our 2015 Symposium Event, which featured Trent Bosch, Nick Cook, Bill Bowers and Arnie Geiger. Be sure to check out Nick's website!
