June Ice Cream Social

For our June 27th meeting will be having an "ice cream social". This is a fun way to get to know your fellow turners. There sill be home made cookies, ice cream bars and more. We are working on getting a demo from someone (Stihl or Arbortech?). This event is open to everyone. Invite your spouse and any turners you know, in any of the other clubs. The more the merrier. We do need a count of who's coming so please register here as soon as possible so we can buy the correct amount of ice cream!

Robert Verhines - Incorporating Wicker with Bowls

At our May Meeting Robert Verhines gave a really interesting presentation on how to add wicker to your bowl turnings. Robert just started doing this technique but he shared some good tips and tricks on how to create some lovely bowls.  If you have any questions on how to do it, you can look up his contact info in the member's only section of our website (below) or check out the recording on YouTube

Nor-Cal Woodturners is a non-profit organization  of woodturning enthusiasts from the greater Sacramento, California area. Our membership ranges from the novice to the seasoned woodturning professional.


Our mission is to foster an appreciation of the traditions and art of Woodturning. We do this by sharing our experiences, techniques and the turnings we produce with each other and the public.


Whether it's through our Youth Training Program, the Mentor program, club-sponsored day long turning events with nationally and internationally famous woodturners, our extensive library of books, tapes and DVDs or our monthly meetings, there is something for everyone.


The club meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month (except in November and December).
