Tennessee Association of Woodturners Calendar of Events

Monthly Meetings:

The TAW meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home, located at 1310 Franklin Rd, in Brentwood, TN.  Meetings start at 7:00 pm.  In addition we meet for a hands on Turn-In work day on the Saturday following the monthly meeting, unless otherwise announced, at the woodshop located on the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home property. TAW periodically participates in local exhibitions and demonstrations as well as sponsoring an annual symposium.


2018 Meetings​​​

​December 6 Meeting - Christmas Party
You are invited
Please join us for the TAW Christmas Party on Thursday, December 6 beginning at 6:00 pm.  Location is MAFIAoZA's Pizza, 230 Franklin Road, Franklin, TN 37064 - located in The Factory in Franklin.  The club will provide the pizza, you pay for your drinks and anything else you want to eat.
This is a great way to get to know and interact with other Club members that you may not get a chance to talk with during a monthly meeting.  So come on out, kick back, relax, and enjoy the company of other woodturners during the holiday season.
R.S.V.P. to Barry Buntin by December 1st by sending e-mail to vp@tnwoodturners.org.

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

November 10, 2018

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.
