Cascade Woodturners Association


Members of Cascade Woodturners Association enjoy making all kinds of different objects using a lathe.  The pictures on the left illustrate work sent in by some of those members for the "show and tell" part of our recent monthly meetings. 

Cascade's July newsletter is up on this website.  

Our next meeting will be on Thursday, July 18, 2024!  It will be a live meeting at the Wild Lilac center, with visiting turner Craig Timmerman doing a live demonstration!  We will try to broadcast the meeting on Zoom. 

Craig will demonstrate his techniques and methods for making 'Winged Bowls'.

Craig will also be presenting an all day demonstrating on the following day, Friday, July 19, presenting some of his unique shapes and turnings.  See the event description for more info on this.

Craig is well known in the turning/art world.  You can see more of his work here:
