Nor-Cal Woodturners

Holiday Party

Join us on December 12th at 6:30 pm for our annual Holiday Party. It's a fun event. Bring an item you have turned (no need to wrap it, we have gift bags) and join our gift exchange.  We'll have snacks and time to chat with other members of the club.  Spouses are invited, and if you want to make a 2nd turning so they can be involved in the gift exchange that's great.  Click here to learn more.

Jack Stellman Fundraiser

Randy Panos was the lucky winner of the new Rikon lathe. Thanks to everyone who donated, we raised $ 875 that will go toward setting up the Jack Stellman Learning Center at Woodcraft on Folsom Blvd.  Next time you are in Woodcraft thank them for organizing this. Jack was a long-time member of SAW and Nor-Cal Woodturners. He was up to all challenges and those who knew him were all touched in one way or another.

Who we are:


Nor-Cal Woodturners is dedicated to promoting the art of woodturning.  We would be happy to meet with any organization or school that would like to learn more about this age old craft. If you have any questions write to

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).
