Chapel Hill Woodturners is a group of woodturners devoted to the mastery of wood turning and the use of the lathe.

Club members gather weekly to turn and to learn from one another.  The club meets at the Chapel Hill studio of the club.

The pictures below show us at work and play.


 In February 2019, CHW decided to make a coat rack for the shop with individually turned pegs.  The photo below shows some of the pegs.

The mission of our club is to improve as woodturners, to help interested novices get a start in woodturning, and to participate in a variety of projects that benefit the Chapel Hill community through woodturning.

This Website is a window into our world. It includes descriptions of projects in which we participate, galleries of member's work, and handouts that explain a variety of turning projects.

Please join us as we learn and grow.
