Monthly Demonstration Meetings

The Peace River Woodturners conduct monthly lathe and woodturning-related demonstration meetings.  A short business meeting is held to keep Members up-to-date on current Club happenings. During "Show & Tell", individual PRW Members show and discuss turnings they have brought to the meeting. Members will see the up-close details on large monitors throughout the meeting room of the physical lathe processes/techniques used to turn a wide variety  of projects, depending on the subject for that meeting. Everyone is encouraged to ask questions and discuss techniques with the demonstrator, and to mingle with the others during short breaks in the meeting's program..
