Saturday Turn Ins Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home
Saturday Turning & Learning Sessions 8:00 am -noon


We hold a hands-on Turning & Learning session every month for our membership. At these Turning and Learning sessions, we gather together to share, assist and enjoy the company of our fellow members. The sessions are open to all members and are oriented toward mentoring, skill development, and fun.


The Turning & Learning sessions are usually held the Saturday following the monthly TAW meeting. We begin at 8:00 AM and wrap up at noon. In these four hours, there is plenty of time for you to get questions answered, tool technique tips and even a few pointers on sharpening. Some of our members have completed their first turning projects at these sessions!


The sessions are held at the TBCH Woodshop. This woodshop is our own little turning oasis that we are lucky enough to have been given complete access. The woodshop is located at the southeast corner of the TBCH Campus in the commissary and auto repair building.
