Several years ago, a local woodturner invited members of the Woodworkers Guild of Western Colorado to gather periodically at his shop to share ideas and promote woodturning .
As interest increased, the woodturning group decided to become an independent woodturning organization. In January, 2014, the Montrose Area Woodturners, Inc. was formed. The group became a recognized chapter of the American Association of Woodturners with Dave Kaufmann as the first president.
