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.

Doug Thompson - Demonstrator - September 17th

In Doug’s own words, “Woodworking has always been a part of my life, since early childhood to the present the sight of a board or log is still a thrill and the question goes through my head… what could I make from it. I learned from my dad early in life that planning is the key to any project and even the most difficult challenge can be worked through if you take it one step at a time. This single lesson has carried me through every project I have done.”

Doug will be showing us the latest techniques and tools at this month’s AWG meeting.
