The Woodturners Guild of NC is again invited to take part in Heritage Day at Historic Oak View County Park in Raleigh on Saturday, Oct. 7.

We'll be under a large tent with tables and a mini-lathe from 10 am to 4pm, doing what we love.

As with other public events for the club, we need volunteers take two-hour shifts through the day either doing demos or greeting visitors and talking about woodturning.

Shifts are: 9-11 am, 11-2pm, and 2-4:30pm. For each shift we are looking for someone to turn and someone else to meet & greet. First and last shifts will include helping to set up and break down the event.

If you are interested, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and state which shift and whether you want to demo or just talk with visitors.

Turning outside in early October can be a wonderful experience and this lower-key event has the benefit of smaller crowds with more keen interest in the crafts and artisans demonstrating.

If you volunteer you are also welcome to display and/or sell your own pieces at the event.

We will provide the mini lathe and basic rest/spur/chuck setup and you just bring your hand tools, safety gear and some wood to turn.

If you have any questions, please call and leave a message with your contact information at 919-697-8876

The park is located right near the 440 Beltline just off of the Poole Road exit heading east. Take your first left after the exit and follow the signs along Carya Drive. (Google map)
