The AAW has a strategic plan, called Vision 2020, which is focused on improving the AAW’s services, programs, and resources.
An important first step in this process is to learn about the people involved in woodturning –you. More specifically, we’d like to ask you to complete an online survey to help us understand why you turn, how you develop your woodturning skills, and how you view your chapter and the AAW.
The survey will be open until November 14, but we encourage you to complete it as soon as possible.
No personal information will be collected or used as part of the survey process.
If you complete the survey, you will have an opportunity to download AAW’s “Turners for Tops” booklet free in appreciation of your time. A link to the digital booklet will be available on the final “Thank you” screen immediately following your survey submission.

Thank you so much for helping us to improve how your chapter and the AAW serve you.
Jim Talley will demonstrate for us at our next meeting! He plans to show some quick and easy Christmas gift ideas, such as spurtles, honey dippers, tops, salt urns, tea candles, and potpourri containers. Jim always does a great demo. Drop by and learn how to make some neat gifts. The meeting will be held at the Lyndon House Arts Center on October 4th at 6pm.
We will also be taking nominations for officers for election in November. Be prepared to nominate some great officers!
The next meeting will be September 6 at 6:00pm in the Lyndon House. We will have Hal Simmons demo. We are lucky to get Hal as he is an excellent teacher and in demand. He will do a demo on ornaments. We hope to see you there!
Since we did not collect dues this year we are struggling. If you have not contributed to the club this year please donate $10.00 so we can round out the year with nice meetings in October and November.
In this demo Mike Peace will demonstrate several small spindle projects each with their own different method for chucking: pill boxes, light and fan pulls, and knobs or chess men.
The meeting will be on August 2nd, 6pm at the Lyndon House.
