Devoted to sustaining and advancing the art of woodturning...

A proud chapter of the American Association of Woodturners


Montrose Area Woodturners is a place for new and experienced turners to collaborate, contribute, and preserve the art of woodturning.

Montrose Area Woodturners has  undertaken a new project in conjunction with local artists.  Working with Montrose area cancer organizations, the woodturners are now creating wig stands for  cancer patients.

Montrose Center for Arts is pleased to welcome the Montrose Area Woodturners and the Woodworkers Guild of Western Colorado as the Featured Artists in March.

 This month’s First Friday is sponsored by Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans. 
Montrose Area Woodturners is a place for new and experienced turners to collaborate, contribute, and preserve the art of woodturning.  Woodturning is defined as the action of shaping wood with a lathe. To a regular soul a downed tree is nothing more than firewood or perhaps garden mulch. But to the woodturner, the tree is an art to ponder. Will it be a bowl? A wall-hanging? A delicate hollow form? Or, on a bad day, indeed the dreaded firewood!

Show and Tell

Wear hearing protection during extended periods of turning.
