Gold Country Wood Turners
Who We Are
Welcome to Gold Country Woodturners
We are a group of woodturners who live in the northern Sierra Nevada foothills concentrated around Grass Valley and Nevada City, California. 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 75 members.
