cascade woodturners


Cascade Woodturners Association is an Oregon nonprofit organization devoted to educating woodturners and the public about the art and craft of woodturning.  We have monthly meetings with demonstrations of woodturning and related skills, and provide members with a monthly newsletter, access to a lending library, a store with woodturning supplies, a raffle of turnable wood, and discounts on purchases at selected purveyors of woodturning tools and supplies

Meetings are usually held on the third Thursday of each month except December.  Meetings usually begin at 6:45 pm at the Pacific Northwest Carpenters Institute ("PNCI"), at 4222 NE 158th Avenue, Portland, Oregon 97230.  See "Upcoming Events" below for information about our upcoming meetings and other events.

Special Event: Cascade had a booth at the Gresham Arts Festival on July 20th.  Len Otto did a great job organizing, and lots of Cascade members showed up to help out.  The Gresham Arts Festival is the City's biggest event of the year and lots of people got to see woodturning demos and examples of the work of Cascade members.  You can see pictures of our booth at the festival below.
