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.

And the final answer is 152 Bowls
Congratulations turners we broke our record from past years by turning 152 bowls for the Empty Bowl Project. Not only did we turn more bowls than previous years, but in my opinion the quality of the bowls was much higher!
Empty Bowl is a fundraiser for Hospitality House, our homeless shelter in Grass Valley. The event will be held at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 W. Main Street, Grass Valley this Saturday, March 14th. For $30/person you can further support Hospitality House by showing up for one of the three settings: 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., 1 p.m. - 2:30 p.m., or 3 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. For that price you will have a simple meal of bread and soup plus a bowl to take home. You will have an amazing choice of wooden and ceramic bowl plus wonderful soups donated by local restaurants.
Thank you all for your contributions of bowls, you are an awesome bunch of tuners!
