Welcome to the Atlanta Woodturners Guild

The Atlanta Woodturners Guild (AWG) was formed to provide support, ideas, and camaraderie to fellow woodturners in the metro Atlanta area. The Guild meets once a month and members are invited to display examples of their work at the instant gallery. New and established turners have the opportunity to ask questions and solve problems with other members.

At each monthly meeting a demonstration is conducted by professional turners from all over the world. It is a great opportunity to see a professional in action, ask questions and learn techniques. The AWG has a comprehensive library stocked with woodturning DVD’s, and books. These items are available to the membership for a small rental fee. Members are kept informed about upcoming events and activities through this, their web site.

All interested in learning about woodturning are welcome to attend the month meetings.

Upcoming Events

The AWG meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM.

Alan Carter - Demonstrator on November 19, 2014

Good design is the bedrock upon which any successful artistic enterprise is built. The psychological space a work of art occupies, its visceral magnetic allure, is as meaningful as its physical presence. As an artist, I’m keenly aware of the importance of this principal. The measure of success I achieve is directly related to my understanding of these dynamics.

Craftsmanship is also unequivocally vital. Solid construction technique, an understanding of wood behavior, and attention to detail are an absolute prerequisit to the success of the finished product. Every component of a piece deserves the same degree of scrutiny and attention. Each part is an integral component of the whole.
