President of AWA
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.
AWA Members turn more bowl blanks!
John Lane contacted Tall Trees, a tree health care company, about birch trees for bowl blanks a couple of months ago.
Tall Trees donated some trees to our organization recently.
Thank you Tall Trees, your donation is greatly appreciated.
June 7 - 11, 2016, several of our members quickly and efficiently turned the logs into bowl blanks, and had a lot of fun doing it. Over 340 bowl blanks were turned within those few days. That put's our total up to about 445 bowl blanks that are currently drying to turn into bowls.

Check your lathe speed BEFORE you turn on the lathe. It is always SAFER to ensure your lathe starts at a LOW speed.
As always, be sure to wear a good dust mask as wood dust is harmful to your body.
