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.

Cheryl Lewis - Ancient Painting Technique
Come to February’s meeting to see Cheryl Lewis demonstrate something you’ve probably never seen before. Curious? Great! She says it’s a fun surprise and she’ll unveil a technique sure to get friends talking about your latest woodturning project.
As of the 1/22 Meeting: 50 Bowls
Now that you have finished all your holiday gifts it is time to start turn bowls for our once a year Empty Bowl project for our local homeless shelter. We have set a goal of 75 bowls. Hospitality House would like 6 to 8 inch functional bowls, but they will gladly accept artistic bowls for their auction.
We have only 2 more meetings (Jan. 22 and Feb. 26) to turn in bowls, so turn, turn, turn! Last year we provided over 100 bowls, I think we could do better this year if we go for it. Local restaurants provide the soup, we along with ceramic potters provide the bowls.
Last year Empty Bowls raised $35,000 for Hospitality House. This is an important outreach and service to our community!
