See their Artist Page on this site for images; and/or their own website for more info. The club meets every 3rd Tuesday evening and non-members are welcome to attend the first time for free.

For June 2019 Demo /Monthly Meeting Program:


Invites you to enjoy an evening with


“Safety, Creativity and Necessity” 

Jack Reyome who is a lifetime member of Southern Piedmont Woodturners will be our guest demonstrator for June.  Please plan to join us as Jack shares some of his passions of woodturning.  Jack will be sharing and reminding all of us of the importance of Safety when using the lathe by pointing out some techniques and practices on safe turning.  He will also be showing and perhaps demonstrating some of the unique  jigs, tools and inventions he has come up with over the years that make his turning easier and less time consuming.  He will also be discussing the need for creativity in turning whether from the onset of a project, a design opportunity or the lack of a needed tool. This promises to be a solid Back to the Basics presentation that experienced, intermediate and beginner turners can get great ideas and reminders from.  I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday.
