MEETINGS: DelVal Turners meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Meeting topics include show and tells, demonstrations, and discussions on various turning related subjects, such as tool sharpening, sanding, finishing, chucks, jigs, marketing your crafts etc. New members are encouraged to contribute new ideas to help create an interesting and challenging program. Our demonstrations are most often given by nationally and internationally renowned turners and artists.

The club invites some of the best woodturners in the world to demonstrate at our club meetings . Woodturners freely share their skills with all,  thus providing novice to expert turners with a wealth of information.

The club will often offer information about wood that has become available and tools for sale.  We also inform members of different woodturning events in the area and upcoming symposiums.
