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.

February 2020 Show & Tell
Shavings Session Sept.4, 2019
October 28, 2020 6:30 pm Zoom Meeting
Arnie Lund - CA Finishes
Arnie will be leading a discussion on his methods of using CA glue as a finish on some of his turned pieces; in case you were wondering why you might need a pint or quart of CA glue instead of just the 2 oz. hardware store version. Some of those large soft punkie pieces you just haven't been able to toss might be salvageable by using CA to soak into the wood and add some stability. Arnie always has a few useful tips and trick we might not have thought of.
Hope to see you next Wednesday 10/28/2020 on the Zoom call. Bill Juhl or Steve Danner will be sending out the meeting name and password.
