Tauranga Woodcrafters Guild Inc.

Turning Group


Our Turning Group meetings combine hands-on learning sessions with 1:1 instruction in the mornings followed by a group project and critique in the afternoons.

Monthly Meetings


The Turners Group meetings are listed in our Guild Brochure . Our workshop is well equiped with lathes. New members can use a good selection of turning chisels and scrapers which are owned by the club until they build their skills and begin to buy their own equipment.

Monthly Projects


The Turning Group build members skills by setting a monthly project and then having an experienced turner critique each members contribution at the following meeting. Their objective is to explore new ideas and to improve.

Experience is shared


Experienced members work with new turners to develop skills and to build people's confidence in using the equipment correctly,
