"Passionate about Woodworking"
The Lone Star Woodturners Association, Inc.
is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization and a member of these non-profit associations: American Association of Woodturners (AAW) and the Southwest Area Turners Association (SWAT)
From our first founders meeting, the Lone Star Woodturners Association has grown to a group of 55 enthusiastic members, including 10 founding members. Our membership ranges from professional to hobby woodturners, woodcarvers, woodworkers and others interested in different types of woodworking.
Our educational events include monthly meetings and special events with with woodturning, or woodworking demonstrations that are typically held on the fourth Saturday of each month, at a local Woodcraft store located at FM 1960 and I-45 North.
Members are always encouraged to discuss their current and completed projects at each meeting during the "Show and Tell" portion of the meeting. We also participate in special public exhibitions and art and craft shows, like the Panther Creek Art and Crafts Festival, held in November in The Woodlands, Texas and the "Turn Tomball Art Show" held in Tomball, Texas.
2013 is going to be a fantastic year for the LSWA! We have a great program of educational demonstrations and events planned for our members. We are also planning our fifth and sixth annual "Woodturning Mini-Retreats" in 2013, that will feature intensive hands-on woodturning classes, carving classes and general woodworking demonstrations.
In addition, in the fall of 2014 we are working to obtain donations to host Your Time To Turn, which will be the first national woodturning symposium specifically designed to teach woodturning techniques to persons with visual and physical disabilities.
