A Hampton Roads based Woodturning Club

Founded 1987

Welcome! Our club is dedicated to helping people advance their woodturning skills. From novice wood turner to advanced bowl turning craftsmen, we have people who are glad to share their knowledge and experience.

"Turners Talk" Meetings

Interested in learning more about wood turning?

Tidewater Turners and Woodcraft Virginia Beach host "Turners Talks" meetings on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at Woodcraft.
During these meetings, attendees have a chance to explore woodturning topics, learn new techniques and get help with problems in a casual and informal setting. Each meeting includes an in-depth show and tell and a focus on a particular aspect of turning such as measuring devices, chucks and mounts, or deep hollowing. You do not need to participate but may rather watch and listen. This is an excellent venue for expanding and sharing your wood turning knowledge.
