The Chapel Hill Woodturners will host a tool making workshop at Frank Penta's place in Chapel Hill from 9 AM until 3 PM on Friday, November 22.

If you have any questions, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. There is no charge, but steel and tool accessories will be for sale at prices well below retail.

In addition to the opportunity to buy materials at low cost , there is a certain satisfaction in making your own tools and Chapel Hill club members will be on hand to assist at the various tool making stations.

If you were there, you saw him turn it. If you missed it, you can watch the whole thing on video.

Either way, you still have a chance to own a piece of art from master craftsman David Ellsworth for the price of a raffle ticket on Thursday, June 14.

When David came out for the May WGNC meeting demo, he produced two lovely ash bowls as the crowd watched, listened and learned from this masterful artisan. The cut-edge piece, about twelve inches in diameter and four inches high, will be raffled.

Join us at the NC State Crafts Center, 7 p.m. June 14, and you can buy a raffle ticket for a chance to win this marvelous piece. With a little luck, you could own something akin to what many museums, galleries and private collectors have cherished for years.

In lieu of our annual picnic, we will have our monthly meeting per usual - the 2nd Thursday, July 14th,at 7:00pm in the Craft Center.  Instead of a  featured demonstrator, the club will view a new video addition to the Library.  The best part is you can choose - simply vote on the title you would most like to see (above).  The video with the most votes will be shown (possibly not in its entirety time pending).

The other club functions - Instant Gallery and Critique, Raffle, and Socializing will continue per usual.  We look forward to seeing you in cool air conditioning on July 14th.

WGNC is proud to be a sponsoring club for the North Carolina Woodturning Symposium on November 4-6 at the Greensboro Coliseum. Come see 6 international and 7 regional demonstrators in 63 rotations over three days ... an event not to be missed. Click here to register and find out more: northcarolinawoodturning.com
