Welcome to the Website for the Ohio Valley Woodturners Guild!
We are a volunteer group of over 300 people who like to make things out of wood on a lathe. We love to share what we do and help our members and others learn and get better at making functional and decorative things with wood.  

We invite everyone to explore our website, visit us at one of our meetings, and even join our group. Our Guild has much to offer: monthly meetings with demonstrations of woodturning skills, classes and open shop time in our fully equipped Learning Center studio, mentors to help new members learn how to turn, and more. Select the "Event Calendar" to see the many meetings and other activities we have underway.

In "About Us" Tab, you'll find our Mission, information about our meetings, how we're organized and more.  Click on the Membership Tab if you'd like to join our group.

If you have questions or want to learn more, go the "Contact Us" tab to contact information for the Board members of our Guild.
