    Mentors Available to Members

    One of the many wonderful benefits of being a member of our club is the availability of volunteer mentors that are willing to provide hands-on instruction to all woodturning levels.  This can be done at the mentor’s shop or at the member’s home on their own lathe.  It is an excellent way for beginning turners to quickly learn basic skills and safety and for more advanced turners to develop new ideas and skills.  There is a mentor list with phone numbers located on this website under the “Members Only Resources”.

    Each mentor can teach basic skills.  Also, some special specific topics are also listed.  These are subjects in which they are especially interested in or have more advanced skills in than many turners.
