About the Great Falls Woodturners

The Great Falls Woodturners Club is a group of woodworkers whos main interest is in turning wood. If you have found your way here I imagine you already know what woodturning is but just in case here is a definition from WikiPedia, "Woodturning is a form of woodworking that is used to create wooden objects on a lathe. Woodturning differs from most other forms of woodworking in that the wood is moving while a stationary tool is used to cut and shape it. Many intricate shapes and designs can be made by turning wood."

The group pictured above are part of the Great Falls Turners who are enjoying a Saturday club demo, this time presented by Bob Sobolik demoing pen making and bottle stoppers.  Members share with members with their  experience on various projects once a month.

Additionally the club has conducted two day seminars where we brought in nationally known  woodturners Jimmy Clewes in 2011, Mike Mahoney in 2013, Rudy Lopez in 2015, Trent Bosch in 2016, Kai Muenzer in 2017 and again in April 2018. In 2019 we hosted Sam Angelo.
